https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-08-09/qld-baby-dies-after-magpie-swoops-mother/100362406A baby girl has died after an incident involving a swooping magpie at a Brisbane park.
Paramedics said the infant sustained critical injuries after her mother tripped and fell while trying to avoid the bird on Sunday afternoon at Glindemann Park in Holland Park West.
The baby was taken to the Queensland Children's Hospital but later died.
It comes after Brisbane City Council workers removed several birds from the park.
The council's standards chair Kim Marx said an exclusion zone had been established at the site.
"This is an extremely tragic accident and our hearts go out to the family involved," Cr Marx said.
"A number of signs warning about swooping birds were in place around the area where this incident occurred, and our officers have now installed several more."
