Dec. 21, 2022

The godmother of a nine-month-old baby girl who died on Sunday is speaking out on behalf of the grief-stricken parents.

Timie-Lynn Jones told CTV News Mazikeen Hachey was rushed to Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre in Moncton, N.B., Sunday morning.

Jones said Taylor Martin, Mazikeen’s mother, called paramedics to her Scoudouc, N.B., home when she noticed her baby was having respiratory problems.

According to Jones, the baby tested positive for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) after she passed away.

Jones said Mazikeen’s mother brought her to the emergency department at the Moncton Hospital two weeks ago, but didn’t see a doctor because the wait was going to be around 24 hours.

Martin then took Mazikeen, her twin brother and older sister to a walk-in clinic. Jones said Martin was told her baby had a bad cold.
