Infant dies after falling ill on flight to Hawaii

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 07:52 p.m. HST, Apr 22, 2013

A 4-month-old infant from Canada is dead after a flight to Honolulu.

Honolulu police spokeswoman Michelle Yu said the boy was rushed to a hospital Sunday after he became unresponsive during the flight.

The baby was pronounced dead just before midnight. There are no signs of foul play.

The Medical Examiner’s Office conducted an autopsy on Monday, but doctors say they need more information to determine the cause of death.

The Medical Examiner’s Office said the boy was from British Columbia.

No mention of the child being sick. Could be a case of SIDS.

I'm sure that the parents would not have taken him on the flight if he was sick enough to die. This was obviously a unforseen, tragic, event.

Wishing the parents and family much strength to get through this, no doubt they will feel like it is their fault and blame themselves for a long time, this is so hard to go through I'm sure for them.
