In 1996, Sally Clark, an English Solicitor, gave birth to her first child. Unfortunately, her infant son died at the age of 11 weeks. Doctors reported the cause as sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) — a diagnosis when an infant dies unexpectedly and postmortem doesn’t reveal anything.
SIDS usually occurs during sleep and affects infants under the age of one year, with the peak incidence occurring when the infant is at 2 to 4 months of age. As an aside, Elon Musk’s first child had also succumbed to SIDS in 2002.
Clark’s life took a nasty turn when in January 1998, Clark gave birth to her second son, and the baby died at 8 weeks, again reportedly of SIDS. It’s hard to imagine her situation but her plight worsened when a month later, she was arrested and accused of smothering both her children.
