IN THE most tragic of circumstances, seven week's of parenthood was cruelly taken away from Ashley Cochrane and partner Lakeisha Creamer after the unexpected death of their infant son Quintin.

Driving along on June 25, strapped in his carseat, there were no prior indications of health concerns in seven-week-old Quintin. Until he stopped breathing.

Frantically transported to Gladstone Hospital, the bub was then transferred to Brisbane.

A lack of oxygen to the brain had irreversibly affected young Quintin.

He was a good baby, a normal baby.

He was taken off life support systems, surprising everyone by fighting for 17 hours.

Father Ashley Cochrane said the death of his only child was an event he is unlikely to ever come to terms with.

Doctors are dumbfounded as to the cause.

"He was a good baby, a normal baby," Ashley said.

"We can't really explain what happened."

The Wallaby football fraternity is rallying behind their teammate.

A minute's silence was observed at Marley Brown Oval last Sunday.
