Birth: Feb., 1987
Death: Jun., 1987

The body of baby Christopher has been lying in a mortuary for 20 years because his parents refuse to accept he died a cot death.Four month old Christopher will remain in a drawer marked "Baby Blum Deceased",his tiny frame kept at
-8C,until his mother and father sign the death certificate which would allow a funeral to take place.A pathologist told his parents in June 1987 that their son died a cot death,but they insist that a triple vaccine administered only hours before his death was to blame.Until a new investigation is opened and blood tests re-examined,they refuse to register Christopher's death on a certificate bearing the words 'sudden infant death syndrome'.His father Steve Blum said:"Of course I want to have him buried.If they release his body now I'll bury him,but I am not going to sign the register if it says cot death"
