Infant dies of


A two-month-old infant who was born premature after a blood clot claimed his mother's life has died in the middle of the night of a still 'unclear' cause, although he may have suffocated in his sleep alongside his father, an inquest revealed on Wednesday. 

“Under these circumstances, it is not possible to completely rule out accidental air obstruction as having contributed to Dexter's death. But as such, the cause of death remains uncertain,” Dr William Simmons said at Old Town Hall in Blackburn, UK, on ​​Wednesday, according to local media outlet Lancs News.&nbsp ;

Almost a year after the tragedy, the cause of death of little Dexter Khan-Barnes has still not been identified, he who lost his life in the middle of the night, in the bed that he was sharing with his brother and father, the English media reported. 

That night, the bereaved father brought two bottles near the bed, like the night before, to feed the baby when he would wake up in the middle of the night. It was when he woke up around 5:30 a.m., surprised not to have heard the baby asking for the bottle, that he would have noticed that the baby's arms were flabby and his eyes were discolored, described the local media. < /p>

No injuries or illnesses were found during the inquest. 

Laura Barnes, who had always wanted to become a mother, had been deprived of the chance to meet her son due to a blood clot that claimed his life after successfully delivering the little one by cesarean section, his mother Jennifer Barnes said.
