Woman collapses and dies while worshipping in church

A woman collapsed and died on Sunday the 14th of May 2023 while worshipping at a church in Lang’ata sub-county.

Efforts to save her life were unsuccessful as she was pronounced dead on arrival at Mbagathi Hospital in Nairobi County.

Initially, fellow church members thought the deceased had simply fainted and handed her over to the church ushers to deal with the situation.

However, it became clear that she needed immediate medical attention and it was decided to take her to Mbagathi Hospital. Her identity is still unknown.

Commenting on the incident, Nairobi Police Commissioner Adamson Bungei said: “We are yet to establish the cause of death. An autopsy will be conducted once we have identified her. This will greatly assist our investigations.

Bungei reassured the public: “Our experts are working tirelessly to establish what happened. Preliminary findings show no visible injuries on the body at the time of inspection”.
