3-Year-Old Calls To Tell Mother Something Sweet, Then Tragedy Unexpectedly Strikes

While many parents think sudden infant death syndrome, also known as SIDS, is something only parents of newborns have to party, that wasn’t the case for Jasmine Shortland.

The last words she heard before her 3-year-old died from sudden infant death syndrome was “Goodnight, I love you,” Mirror reports.

The 23-year-old says it was about 8:15 a.m. when she was woken up by a loud banging at her door

"It was my step-dad David,” she said. “He was crying, saying: 'Bryan's gone.’ I just fell on the floor screaming and crying.”

Her son Bryan was staying at his grandmother’s house for a few days with his younger brother Austin because Shortland thought that Bryan might have the mumps and didn’t want her youngest son who was 4-months-old to get sick.

"He'd been to the doctor because his face was swollen and we were told it was suspected mumps," Shortland said.

When her son went to bed that night, he never woke up. His grandmother called the paramedics who discovered that his heart stopped beating. The medical team at the hospital were unable to save the boy. The family was completely and utterly devestated. Now the family is trying to raise funds to have a horse drawn carriage for the boy’s funeral.
