More Details on the Death of Daniel Smith
TMZ reports that Anna Nicole Smith found her 20-year-old son, Daniel, unconscious on her hospital bed in the maternity ward of a Bahamas hospital. Daniel came to visit his new baby sister born last Thursday.
According to police, Smith herself found her son in her hospital room yesterday around 9:00 am, thinking that he was asleep. She then tried to wake him up and, after he didn't respond, immediately called for help. At that point, doctors and staff were not able to revive 20-year-old Daniel. Anna Nicole had just given birth three days earlier in the same hospital to a baby daughter.
The police continue to maintain that there were no signs of visible injury on the body, and that there were no signs of violence in the room. Police add that they haven't deemed the death a homicide, and do not suspect foul play.
Sources cited by the local newspaper Nassau Guardian have suggested that the cause of death was a "massive heart attack," but neither doctors nor the local coroner has confirmed this. And the Guardian adds that Daniel Smith arrived in Nassau on Saturday, after his mother had given birth.
Heart attack at 20? I guess it's possible. It's still extremely sad.
