20 October 2014
Shane died in his parents' arms four hours after birth
A baby boy born with anencephaly has died after living for only a few hours.
After Shane was diagnosed in the womb, his parents decided to draw up a 'bucketlist' for him - things they would like him to do before he is born and passes away. As babies with anencephaly usually live for only a hours or days after birth, Shane's parents completed everything on the list and documented it online before Shane was born.
Shane was born at 2:25am on 9 October and died in his parents' arms four hours later. [Fox News, 9 October]
