She said: "She (Leila) was having mini-seizures, her lips turned blue and really big. Then her tongue was rolling around out of her mouth, and she was only breathing every five to 10 seconds."

Little Leila was also coughing and foaming at the mouth. It turned out that she had taken the camphor oil from the head of her grandmother's bed.
