'Bernie Baby,' Youngest Star Of Sanders Campaign, Dies Of SIDS

One of the most visible, and by far cutest, social media stars of Bernie Sanders's campaign was Oliver Jack Carter Lomas-Davis, better known on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as the "Bernie Baby."

Sadly, the cute internet star died on Feb. 25 at just 4 months old, of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

SIDS (or "crib death") is the leading cause of death among children ages 1 month to 1 year old, and results in approximately 2,500 fatalities annually in the U.S.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the family with the cost of a memorial service and burial.
