Alby Davis chokes on bouncy ball and dies in pregnant mother's arms

A three-year-old boy choked on a bouncy ball and died in his pregnant mother's arms.

Alby Davis was playing with a new ball he had just unwrapped as an early fourth birthday present at home in Wynyard, Tasmania on Monday.

The ball became lodged in his windpipe and stopped him from breathing. His frantic mother Anna did everything she could to dislodge the ball but her second child choked to death before her eyes.

'Minutes pass like hours and the gaping hole in our lives and hearts is completely incomprehensible. We adore you beyond belief, our sweet little fox. Forever three, forever free.'
