Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. The great majority of lifeless and gasping neonates will die shortly after your noticing those symptoms. I suspect that that's just what happened in this case but you do deserve the courtesy of a reply.
