“It” was pronounced dead? Today it is hard to find educated peeps ! What happened to the news directors or the editor ! A 9 month old child is not an “ it” The proper news write would be The baby was pronounced dead ..

That's weird, was the mother of the child not paying attention to the children. I'm sorry for her loss. It will be interesting to know the cause of death. RIP little angel.🙏🙏


How far were they traveling? Were all the kids in the back seat? Did a blanket get put over the baby's face? I hope they can determine what happened to this poor baby. So sad.
