A new mum suddenly died while she held her baby girl in her arms.
Deanna Rose Gioia, 35-year-old nurse from Staten Island, was cradling two-month-old Adrianna as she prepared to feed her on Sunday 31 July.
Suddenly, she called out to her husband Richard Gioia: ‘I don’t feel well’.
She was already unresponsive when he ran into the room mere seconds later. An ambulance took Deanna to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
‘Just like that, she was gone,’ Debbie DiSalvatore, Deanna’s mother, told Staten Island Live.
The cause of Deanna’s death still remains a mystery, reports The Daily Mail.
She was in good health and didn’t have any complications when she gave birth. Deanna died just two days before her daughter turned two months old.
The family awaits an autopsy report to reveal Deanna’s cause of death.
Our thoughts are with Deanna’s family and friends.
