A two-week-old baby died yesterday when doctors switched off the ventilator that had been keeping her alive after she was injured in a car crash.

Shannon Wilson was hurt on Friday in an accident at Balmacara, in the Highlands, which killed her mother, Rachel, 23. Her father Sandy, 29, who was being treated for severe shock in hospital on Skye, where the family live, was flown to Yorkhill hospital in Glasgow to give his consent for her life-support system to be switched off.
