NHS worker mum, 25, killed daughter, 2, before taking her own life after stealing drugs from hospital where she worked

A NHS worker killed herself and her toddler daughter after injecting them both with drugs she had taken from work.

Shiwangi Bagoan, 25, and her daughter Ziana, 2, were found dead at their home in Hounslow, West London, in December 2020.


Little Ziana and Shiwangi were both found with cannulas, used to administer medication into veins, in their arms when discovered by the toddler’s grandmother.

An investigation by police found several notes at the scene, and it is understood that the pair died on 11 December, three days before they were found.

Officers from the Met also discovered that the mum-of-one had previously attempted to take her own life three years before, and stole the same drugs she used to unlawfully kill her daughter.

Shiwangi had previously worked in hospital operating theatres, as an anaesthetist's assistant for University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

She had been suspended from work for more than a year but returned to West Moreland Street Hospital in July 2020.

The inquest found that she had used her knowledge of medical procedures to administer two drugs to her daughter, before taking her own life.

Shiwangi stole vials of the drugs from the hospital from a locked cabinet she had access too, taking her daughter with her on the 4am trip.

The mum had sent messages to Ziana’s dad saying hat she was “struggling to get through the day” telling him that she was having “hopeless thoughts.”

Shiwangi had also used her mobile phone to search on Google how certain drugs operated in the hours before her death.

A coroner ruled that Ziana’s death was an unlawful killing by her mother, and Shiwangi died as a result of suicide.

Their cause of death was given as respiratory failure due to drug intoxication by West London’s acting senior coroner Lydia Brown.

Ms Brown said: "It is heart-breaking for you to have lost not one, but two, family members, in such difficult circumstances.

“I am sure that these losses have been felt so very widely by all those that knew Shiwangi and Ziana."

In a statement, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust previously said: “We are extremely saddened by the deaths of Shiwangi and her child.

"Our deepest condolences go to her family, friends and loved ones at this very difficult time.

"Shiwangi was a highly valued member of our team and she will be missed by her colleagues.”

Detective Chief Inspector Jim Shirley, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, added: “This is a truly tragic case and my thoughts are with Shiwangi and Ziana’s family as they continue to come to terms with what has happened.

“They have suffered a terrible loss in unimaginably difficult circumstances.

“We will never fully know what led Shiwangi to do what she did. It is clear that mental ill health must have played a significant role.
