EXCLUSIVE: Cornelia Sets the Record Straight on Timeline, Sequence of Events, & Other Details Surrounding Baby Alex’s Tragic Demise
Many of you already know Baby Alex’s heartrending story. Unfortunately, what you know is likely inaccurate. I reached out to Cornelia Hertzler, Baby Alex’s mother, to request clarification regarding the conflicting details I found floating around online, and she was gracious enough to recount exactly what occurred. Cornelia appreciated the opportunity to set the record straight. Please help us get the true story of Baby Alex out to the world.
On February 17, 2022, forty-five-day-old Baby Alex died of a clot so long it extended from his left knee to his heart.
That was twenty-four days after staff at Providence Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital in Spokane, Washington, had administered a transfusion using blood from vaccinated donors—explicitly against the parents’ wishes.
Baby Alex had been born with a throat condition known as tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF), which is often accompanied by cardiac defects. In his case, this took the form of double-outlet right ventricle (DORV)—a “95% survivable congenital heart defect.”
