Three-Month-Old Baby Dies After Left Unattended For A Minute On A Baby Swing

The baby choked on his own vomit.

The parents of a three-month-old baby who died after left unattended on a baby swing have issued a tragic warning to other parents.

While the father of baby Kayden, Jeremy Rainsford, said that he had fed, burped and put his son in a swing for just a minute as he went to the toilet, he has warned parents of leaving their children unsupervised.

When he returned, the parents suspect that their son had choked on his own vomit and was unconscious. He died early on Monday morning at Princess Margaret Hospital.

7 News reports that the parents don’t think the swing was the source of the issue, rather the fact that he was unattended and choked on his vomit.
