Mum’s anguish as 2nd child found lifeless in bed
THIS HAS NOT BEEN Natalie Brathwaite’s year. And neither was 2016 for that matter.
Last year she lost her five-week-old daughter Jadijah Brathwaite and since then a series of unfortunate events followed. She said she woke up one morning and found the infant foaming at the nose with a bloody mouth.
In February, 30 weeks pregnant, Brathwaite was one of several people who were in an elevator at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) when it took a plunge from the B to the ground floor.
Yesterday, around 6 a.m., history repeated itself when she found her son Jazari, who was born two months ago, also foaming at the mouth.
“I wake up this morning and my child was foaming at the nose and the mouth was filled with blood and saliva. He was still warm and I tried to just do what I could do, but I ain’t get back no response,” she told the MIDWEEK NATION.
After he was unresponsive, she then frantically called the ambulance, but soon after paramedics pronounced him dead at the house.
