First baby of 2008

The first baby born in our area this year has died. His dad was babysitting. He was taken to the hospital with "severe head and bodily injuries." After 13 days in the hospital, the mother made the decision to end life support:

On Good Friday, with three generations gathered around the hospital crib of Camryn Jakeb Wilson, the 2 1/2-month-old baby's mother made the hardest decision of her life.
She and her family were told by doctors at Akron Children's Hospital that Camryn had no brain function, could not survive on his own and would be on a feeding tube the rest of his life.
So, Crystal Wilson authorized ending Camryn's life support.
