A 2-year-old boy has tragically died after what was apparently a botched circumcision at a medical clinic in Western Australia.
The boy's baby brother also needed life-saving surgery after undergoing the same procedure.
The brothers were rushed to hospital in the Perth suburb of Armadale after the procedures on Tuesday night.
The 2-year-old was declared dead on arrival at the hospital's emergency ward.

His brother was later rushed to Perth Children's Hospital, according to a Seven News report.
The surviving brother, believed to be just seven or eight months old, underwent emergency surgery and spent Tuesday night in the ICU.
According to the Daily Mail, he is believed to be in a stable condition and recovering in hospital.
Homicide detectives have been called in to investigate the horrific incident. However officials at the Western Australian Police Force have confirmed his death is no longer being treated as suspicious.
"It can be confirmed the boy underwent a medical procedure at a registered medical centre prior to his death," police said.
The investigation has been handed to the coroner and a report will be prepared by police.
