(Neb)-Heart Condition Blamed For Death Of Chadron 3-Year Old Listen
CHADRON - Dawes County Attorney/Coroner Vance Haug says a disease of the heart is the apparent cause of death on Saturday of 3-year old Damion Neidert of Chadron. The boy was not breathing found in his home about 11:00 Saturday morning and pronounced dead at the scene.
Haug says an investigation at the scene and interviews with both witnesses and medical professionals, including a consultation with State Epidemiologist Dr Tom Safranek at the state health lab, pointed toward natural causes, specifically miocarditis, an inflamation of the heart muscle generally caused by a viral or bacterial condition.
Although he's confident in the conclusion, Haug has ordered additional testing to help determine just what caused Neidert's miocarditis.
Funeral services for Damion Neidert will be tomorrow (Friday) at 2:00 PM at the Chadron Christian Church. Online condolences can be made at www.chamberlainchapel.com.
