Tragedy as ‘fine, happy and healthy’ girl, 3, dies suddenly in her sleep

A 'fine, happy and healthy' three-year-old girl sadly died in her sleep suddenly.

Annayah Rosa Balmer, from Bootle on Merseyside, died on April 16, and it's still a mystery as to why she passed away.

Annayah's mum, 24-year-old Talya White, said that the family are still waiting to find out why she died, a process that can take six months, reports the Liverpool Echo.

Talya said: "Annayah was a fine, happy, healthy little girl and on the Thursday she fell asleep peacefully.

"She was such a big fan of Harry Styles, she knew all the songs, all the words.

"When we were driving in the car and songs would come on the radio she would know straight away – she was like a jukebox."

Her devastated family are now fundraising for a local bereavement centre and hope to get a video message from her favourite singer Harry Styles.

The heartbroken mum also said Annayah was a massive Liverpool FC fan with her favourite player being Mohamed Salah.

She added: "She didn't act three, she acted about 33.

"Annayah was on the ball with everything and loved the outdoors, going to the park, climbing.

"She was good as gold, literally an angel child.

Now Talya has one wish which she hopes Harry Styles can fulfil for her daughter.

On October 8, Annayah would have turned four. The family are desperate for the One Direction star to respond with a birthday wish for a charity night they are hosting in aid of Alder Hey Children's Hospital bereavement centre.

Talya hopes a video of Annayah singing his song 'Adore You' will go viral and catch his attention.

She said: "We thought it would be nice to get the video of her to go viral and maybe get a happy birthday video off Harry Styles for her.

"She would absolutely love it."

Regarding how the family are coping, Talya added: "We're doing okay and I have quite a lot of support and I have started going to counselling too.

"It's hard, but you have to take every day as it comes and try and do everything you can for her.

The family are also hoping to host a football match with family and friends at Bootle Football Club to also raise money for the bereavement centre.
