Toddler dies after falling in grease trap at ice cream shop

Auburn police received a 911 call around 1 p.m. Saturday concerning a missing child at the Bruster's Real Ice Cream at 2172 East University Drive.

Police said family members and employees attempted CPR on Sadie, who was then taken to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead, the Opelika-Auburn News reported.

Officers responded around 12:45 p.m. and rushed her to East Alabama Medical Center when she died about an hour later.

Guests have been told to arrive in Ibiza on a certain date and they will then be collected and taken to the hotel. It looks like X-Men actor Fassbender and Ex-Machina movie star Alicia Vikander have just gotten married.


Video surveillance shows the girl playing with her siblings and falling through a lid covering one of the ice cream shop's grease traps. Sadie was stuck in the container between five to 10 minutes before being found, Coroner Bill Harris said.

The case has so far been ruled an accidental drowning and no foul play is suspected.

The death investigation indicates the girl drowned in the sludge that was in the 6-foot-deep in-ground container, Harris said.

Sadie Andrews drowned inside the grease trap. She would light up a room with her smile; she walked with a skip in her step. "And she really was that. always expressing gratefulness and love for God and other people".
