Family raise money for emergency workers who helped their baby boy live long enough for them to say goodbye.

Lucas Wockner was found unresponsive in his cot by daycare workers last Thursday, reports 9 news.

Paramedics resuscitated the nine-month-old, who was airlifted to the Lady Cilento Hospital in Brisbane but died the following day.

The cause of his death is unknown.

Mum Kathy Wockner started a GoFundMe fundraiser to thank emergency services and hospital staff for their efforts in trying to save her “beautiful brave boy”.

“We still do not understand why he didn’t wake from his sleep on Thursday morning but we are so thankful for the team who resuscitated him so that we could have our time to say goodbye,” she wrote on the GoFundMe page.

“He passed surrounded by all the family, for which we are very thankful.”

“We can never truly repay them for the time we spent with our dearly loved boy and the opportunity to share more love, showering him with kisses, embracing him with cuddles and sharing our appreciation for the all the time he shared with us,” she wrote on Facebook.

Any contribution you can make will go to the amazing organisations like Queensland Ambulance Service, Toowoomba Base Hospital, Life Flight, Lady Cilento ICU & Ronald McDonald House.

I cannot begin to imagine their pain. Our thoughts are with the family and loved ones.

  • This must be the most life destroying event. I too cannot imagine their pain. I’m confused though, they resuscitated the baby but he still died? Does that mean ge only made it onto life support? So not really ‘bought back’ as such


  • The tragic loss of a beautiful little one. Not knowing the cause makes it so much harder to come to terms with – not only for his family, relatives and friends but for the daycare staff who were caring for him.


  • RIP Lucas.
