DRAPER, Utah – A “loving, caring” four-year-old girl died over the weekend following a visit to the doctor for bronchitis.
Delilah Warren stopped breathing and collapsed in her home on Sunday around 4:30 p.m., according to ABC4 News.
The station reports Delilah’s mother began CPR on her daughter and called 911. EMS crews arrived and tried to resuscitate the little girl but were unsuccessful.
Delilah reportedly came home from school on Friday complaining of a sore throat but seemed fine otherwise. Two days later, Delilah’s mother took her to the doctor after she developed a fever and started wheezing.
Delilah was placed on antibiotics, ABC 4 News reports, and she started using a nebulizer. Hours later she collapsed and died at home.
“She was our beautiful ray of sunshine, she brightened everyone’s day with her smile and lit up every room she entered,” Delilah’s obituary reads. “Delilah loved everyone she met and spent her beautiful short life expressing that love. She genuinely cared for others and was always thinking of what she could do for someone else. She spoke her love for her family, there was always a ‘love you!’ from Delilah. She was a perfect example of goodness and love and she will be missed by all who knew her. We will love you forever Delilah.”
A GoFundMe account has been created for anyone wanting to help Delilah’s family.
