Warwick girl's croup death 'preventable', coroner rules
A coroner has ruled the death of a seven-year-old girl from Warwick could have been prevented.
Evelyn Smith died in September last year from a viral and bacterial respiratory infection brought on by croup.
In the 36 hours before she collapsed at home, Evelyn had been taken by her parents to A&E at Warwick Hospital, the Priory Medical Centre and a GP surgery.
BBC Midlands Today's Joan Cummins spoke to Evelyn's parents, Trevor and Helen Smith.
