New Brunswick's chief coroner releases results of review into child's death
New Brunswick's chief coroner has released the results from a review looking into the death of a nine-year-old boy.
Government says the boy, whose family was known to the Department of Social Development, died naturally from aspiration pneumonia as a consequence of a degenerative neurological disorder.
The child was receiving services from the Family Supports for Children with Disabilities program.
A news release from the province says the Child Death Review Committee did not make any recommendations in this case.
The committee reviews the deaths of children under the age of 19, including those who were in the legal care of the minister of Families and Children, or whose families were in contact with the Department of Social Development within 12 months before the child's death.
The results were released on Friday by Chief Coroner Gregory Forestell.
