A cat killed a nine month old baby girl by suffocating her to death as she slept in her pram.

Her mother Snezhana, 22, came to check on her daughter Alexandra in her back yard after she finished the housework.

She saw how the pet had been lying on the baby’s face and jumped out of the pram at her home in Lipovetsky district of Vinnytsia region. The girl was not breathing.

The mum called her local paramedic and an ambulance but they could not save the baby who died of asphyxia.
