Nelson Mandela Bay police are investigating after three children died after they allegedly ate 2-minute noodles.
The three children, a four-month-old baby as well as a seven-year-old and 11 old-child, died at the weekend, shortly after eating the noodles and complaining of stomach cramps and nausea.
Police spokesperson Colonel Priscilla Naidu says the three children accompanied their grandparents on Saturday on a visit to relatives in New Brighton.
They stayed over and on Sunday, the 11-year-old girl went to a shop and bought a packet of instant noodles. They complained of stomach cramps and nausea shortly after eating the food.
Colonel Naidu says while being driven with private transport to the Motherwell clinic, they passed away.
A post mortem will be conducted to establish the exact cause of their deaths.
