Inquest into baby's death continues

A CORONIAL inquiry into the death of seven-week-old Isabella Diefenbach has resumed at Rockhampton Magistrates Court today.

The Inquest began in October 2011 and is due to conclude this week.

Isabella died on May 29, 2010 after falling three metres from a balcony of her parents' rented home in Yeppoon.

Isabella was being held by her father Adam, when his foot fell through a wooden plank on the home's deck, causing Isabella to fall from his arms.

Maurice Blackburn Rockhampton Principal Gino Andrieri said the inquest would continue to examine and analyse the responsibilities of landlords and real estate agents.

The coronial inquiry will hear about the history of repairs and maintenance of the property rented by the Jennifer and Adam Diefenbach.

"The Coroners Court has the power to determine whether any measures can be put in place to help prevent deaths in similar circumstances.

Ross O'Reilly, of O'Reilly's Real Estate, the agency that was managing the property, is expected to give evidence today.

"Obviously, Adam and Jenny remain deeply upset about the loss of their daughter.

"This inquest will shed some light on the circumstances surrounding Isabella's tragic death and provide some answers for the Diefenbach family," Mr Andrieri said.

The inquest will run for another 1-2 days before Magistrate Annette Hennessy.
