TAOISEACH Enda Kenny says people must wait on the full facts to emerge on the death of a toddler who fell from a window.

Vakaris Martinaitis (2) had to be driven to Cork University hospital because there was no ambulance available.

The two-year-old boy died 48 hours after sustaining the horrific head injuries following the freak fall in Midleton, East Cork last week. The child died 48 hours later.

Mr Kenny was questioned on the incident in the Dail today by Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin, but the Taoiseach said the HSE had set up an investigation into the incident.

Mr Martin asked about ambulance shortages, but Mr Kenny said the incident is being probed by the HSE's senior incident management team, and added the full facts of the case had to be ascertained.

Mr Kenny and Mr Martin expressed their sympathies to the child's parents.
