Trigger: Mention of child death.
No parent should ever have to go through burying a child. It's the worst thing that can happen to any parent. That's why they'll do anything and everything they can to protect their children from all of life's dangers. Unfortunately, no matter how hard you try to keep your children safe, accidents can still happen with tragic results.
American country singer/songwriter Ned LeDoux recently announced the sad news that his two-year-old daughter, Haven, died after a choking accident took place just last week. He revealed the tragic news through a written post uploaded on his official Facebook page this past weekend.
"It is with great sadness that Ned & Morgan [his wife of 11 years] inform friends and fans that their two-year-old daughter Haven passed away on October 20th due to a tragic choking accident in the home. The LeDoux family appreciates your love and support and is requesting privacy at this time," the Facebook post said.
The statement has originally read, "Paramedics were called to the family’s northeast Kansas home on October 20th and arrived quickly, but attempts to resuscitate her were unsuccessful."
With was just over a month ago when LeDoux- son of late country singer and rodeo champion Chris LeDoux- celebrated little Haven's second birthday back on September 15th. He didn't hesitate to share the monumental moment on his Instagram page with a photo of a smiley Haven among desserts and balloons. He captioned the lovely post with, "Turned the big #2 today! Happy to be home for this special day. What a character this one."
This is clearly a tragic accident that no family should ever have to go through. But it's something that could easily happen to most anyone. That's why, if you aren't already, take the appropriate courses needed to learn how to save your baby or child from choking. You may think doing so is unnecessary, but you never know if or when it could happen to you.
Outside of his Facebook post, LeDoux hasn't commented on his daughter's untimely death. Our thoughts are with LeDoux, his wife, their surviving son Branson, and their family.
