DEAD: Baby Vishnu Sonny Jr...

PRINCES TOWN police officers are investigating the death of a six-day-old baby boy who died yesterday morning. The infant of St Croix Road Extension, Barrackpore was pronounced dead on arrival at the Princes Town Health Facility.

According to police at about 5.30 am yesterday, Diane Salick, 26, and Vishnu Sonny, 27, fed and put their son Vishnu Sonny Jr to sleep. Reports are that baby Vishnu Jr awoke minutes later and within a short space of time stopped breathing. Emergency Health Services were contacted and the infant was rushed to the Health Facility where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Reports said their were no marks of violence on the infant’s body. WPCs Hosein and Dindial visited the scene and conducted interviews. When Newsday visited the family, relatives were in a state of shock. An emotional Diane lay on a bed as she spoke.

“It’s just so hard for us to cope. My baby now came into the world and he is gone. I don’t know how he could have died. He was a healthy baby,” Diane cried.

Baby Vishnu Jr was the couple’s first child. “While he was inside me, my love for him just grew and grew. I could not wait for him to be born. I loved him even more when I held him in my arms,” she said.

Her husband Sonny stood crying nearby. He was too distraught to speak. As she passed her hands repeatedly on the spot along the bed where her son last slept, Diane cried: “I don’t know what to think and I don’t know how he died. Only the autopsy would be able to say. We just have to wait and see because we want answers. Already I miss him,” she sobbed. An autopsy on the baby Vishnu Jr is expected to be performed on Thursday at the San Fernando Mortuary. Investigations continue.
