Her mother, 27-year-old Hana Mazlan, was putting her four-month-old baby to sleep in the kitchen when Nur Qhaisara came to her for milk, reported Bernama.

Nur Qhaisara then went to her grandmother when she stepped on a plate that had been left on the floor

"She suddenly fell and the knife, which was placed on the plate, pierced her left abdomen. The knife was used by her brother to peel mangoes. I didn't notice that it was there," Hana explained.

Hana's mother-in-law then pulled the 15cm knife out and Nur Qhaisara fell unconscious.

The toddler was rushed to a clinic before being referred to Parit Buntar Hospital, where she was pronounced dead
