TRI-CITIES, Wash. - A Hanford firefighter and his bride were honeymooning in Hawaii when they got the tragic news that their 18-month-old son had died.
A GoFundMe account has now been established to help Nickolas and Nikki Augustavo as they mourn the loss of their little boy, Kaysen.
According to a social media post on the Hanford Fire Department Union Facebook page, the couple had just celebrated their wedding on March 9 and had left little Kaysen behind with family in Snohomish County as they went to Hawaii for their honeymoon.
Three days into the honeymoon, the couple heard the tragic news that their young son had died in his sleep.
There was no immediate word on Kaysen's cause of death. An autopsy is reportedly planned.
Fire department staff members from around the state have reached out to help the family in this difficult time.
A GoFundMe account has been started to help the family.
The account will be used for long-term counseling for Nickolas and Nikki as well as funeral expenses for little Kaysen, groceries and various bills to help them through this transition.
