A woman who did not realise her five-year-old son was critically ill with malaria after a Nigerian holiday took him to hospital yesterday after a radio appeal. Davis Anyanwu was being treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children, Hackney. Police were contacted by the boy's doctor after tests revealed he could die unless he received immediate treatment.
