Newborn dies 38 hours after mother

MOREHEAD — Jacqlyn Devyn Reann Jordan Burchett, 2-day-old daughter of Jacqlyn J. Jordan and Jarrod Burchett of Olive Hill, died early Sunday in University of Kentucky Medical Center, about 38 hours after her mother died at St. Claire Regional Medical Center.

The infant was born 13 weeks prematurely and was delivered during unsuccessful efforts to revive her mother, who fell down a flight of stairs Friday morning at her home in Carter County, Rowan County Coroner John Northcutt said.

Delivered in St. Claire’s emergency room a minute after her mother died, the baby was taken to the neonatal intensive care unit at UK, where she died at 12:41 a.m. Sunday.

Northcutt said Saturday preliminary results of an autopsy indicated the 26-year-old suffered a heart-related incident that apparently caused her to lose her balance and fall. She had a history of heart issues and had undergone multiple surgeries, according to Northcutt.

Jordan was a nursing student at Morehead State University.

Northcutt said Carter County EMS was transporting Jordan to St. Claire when she stopped breathing. Resuscitation efforts continued at the Morehead hospital, but to no avail.
