Sometimes, infants can choke on their own vomit,
if left to sleep on their back.

Aren't they all classified as S.I.D. syndrome?

Such a tragic loss of life. As a father of 2 kids ( 2yrs old and 4 yrs old) I can only imagine at how much pain Lamar and the mother are in. My condolences and prayers go out to the grieving parents.

Now, I know it would probably be the last thing on Lamar's mind and it does not compare to the pain and sufferring he must be feeling, but wouldn't it suck to be the guy that has to tell Odom he's being traded? (If there is a trade that's close to being done in the next few days/weeks)

I was actually thinking of that.

It would be the worst possible time right now and I would hate the lakers if they did that.

I'm trying to say I don't even compare things like that. Losing a child is losing a child. I don't really care where you are from, makes no difference to me.

I'm saying that you can't compare the 2 when you haven't lost a child of your own. When you do, then tell me the difference.

Stop being ignorant.

terrible for lamar. my condolescences for him and his family.

it just reminded me of a friend's son who died in the same way a couple of years ago. the kid was about 8 months old, there were about 7 persons taking care of him (my friend's family and his wife) and just for an instant they took their eyes away and the kid suffocated. that was really hard for everyone. guess that memory made this news a little personal.

and i dont get why discuss what is worse. losing a person is losing a person, 6 month old or 6 year old.

Rest In Peace

No one should ever have to go through this. When Eric Clapton lost his kid, I couldn't believe it...No words to express this. Hopefully Odom's is doing all right.
