Probe Launched Into Sydney Child's Gastro Related Death

An investigation has been launched into how a child died after being hospitalised during a Sydney gastro outbreak.

Six children from the same lower north shore childcare centre were struck down with the virus in the past week.

Five of the Little Zak's Artamon attendees were hospitalised with the illness.

One of these children died in hospital on Sunday.

However, NSW health authorities say the death doesn't appear to be related to the illness at this stage.

The public health unit and specialist pediatricians are working on finding the cause of the child's death.

A Little Zak's spokesperson said everybody at the Artarmon centre was deeply saddened by the news.

"Our directors have been in contact with the family of the child to convey our sincerest thoughts and condolences and to offer any support we can," they said.

Two of the children remain in hospital, while two others have recovered and been sent home.
