Nevada Alexander Musk is the firstborn child of the investor and tech mogul Elon Musk. Nevada was born in 2002 and his birthplace is California.
Despite being the son of Elon Musk, Nevada could never actually enjoy his father’s wealth because he passed away at an age of 2 months after he was born. But what caused his death? Let us find out.
Short Life of Nevada
Nevada was born when Elon’s career was starting to go up, his father was planning a Space Transportation company that would later get the name SpaceX. At that time though, Elon did not have that much money.
Nevada was Elon’s kid from his marriage to his college girlfriend Justine Wilson.
Nevada’s parents placed him to sleep and when they returned, he was no longer breathing. They called the paramedics and they tried to resuscitate the poor child. Sadly, the kid win the game of life and he passed away.
The poor infant spent the last three days on Life Support before the parents finally decided to switch it off. The pair took the death of their child very differently. Elon Remained quiet about it while his wife grieved in an open manner.
But the two moved on quickly from it and later had more children.
How did Nevada Alexander Musk die?
The doctors confirmed that Nevada died because of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). This disease is not researched and we don’t have anything that might cause it but this occurs when the children are sleeping. The child might not struggle or have any problem before they pass away from it.
Many things can cause SIDS but the exact factors are not really explained by anyone. Doctors suggest a few things that parents can do to avoid this.
Things like letting a child sleep face-up and using a firm mattress are one way of making it better. They also recommend putting the children in a cool place and away from all the smoke. SIDS is also said to be the prime reason for most infant deaths.
You can avoid it with immunization, breastfeeding, and many other things that help to boost a child’s immune system.
