The 20-month-old baby dies injured during the hail storm in La Bisbal, Girona

The 20-month-old baby injured by the hail storm in Bisbal d’Empordà has died, according to TV3. The storm began this Tuesday in the middle of the afternoon and has caused injuries to twenty people, in addition to causing damage to cars and houses. In some cases, the stones broke the tiles and this caused the water to enter the houses.

The girl has died at the Josep Trueta hospital in Girona, where she was hospitalized due to the impact of the hail. La Bisbal d’Empordà is one of the municipalities most affected by the storm and twenty people have been injured and treated at the local CAP. A woman is still admitted.

The meteorological phenomenon that has fallen on Bisbal d’Empordà came from Pla de l’Estany, where it has already caused damage by breaking the glass of some cars. On its way through the Gironès region, the storm has also left stones of considerable dimensions and when it has reached the Baix Empordà it has been when it has become more important, according to ACN. The diameter of the hailstone has reached 10 centimeters, a record since 2002, according to the Servei Meteorològic de Catalunya.
