SIDS - Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

What is SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)? As wiki defined it,  it's a syndrome marked by the sudden death of an infant that is unexpected by history and remains unexplained after a thorough forensic autopsy and a detailed death scene investigation. It is also known as Crib Death.

I am writing this article out of paranoia brought about by the news I have watched the other day that an infant died after several hours from being vaccinated at the local health center. It was not elaborated what the vaccine was and part of what's being reported is that, the infant died because of aspiration since the mother admitted that the last time she knew that her baby was breathing is right after she feed the baby before sleeping that night. But then, everything are just speculation until proven otherwise and still have to wait for a month for the result of the autopsy they made.
