Jayden-Jay Silveste Biography
Who was Jayden-Jay Silveste?
Little Jayden-Jay Silvester was found by his grandmother in the bathtub of their home in Blurton, Stoke-on-Trent, while his mother Lisa Johnson was wrapping presents in another room.
Mrs Johnson desperately tried to resuscitate the boy, along with paramedics and NHS staff, but she died at Royal Stoke University Hospital later that day.
The tragic death came just 34 days after his father Jason Silvester died in the family home on November 27, with Jayden-Jay, or JJ as he was affectionately known, often asking where he was and saying he wanted to see him.
In a statement, his grieving mother said she had taken her son and younger brother Oscar balloon shopping on Dec. 31 before the latter’s birthday on New Year’s Day, and that they planned to go to the park in the afternoon.
Mrs Johnson said: ‘Jayden-Jay got on the sofa and didn’t want to go to the park because he wasn’t feeling well.
‘His cheeks were raw red and very hot. Twenty minutes later my mother-in-law and sister-in-law arrived.
Causes of Death
‘Jayden-Jay came upstairs and asked if he could take a bath and clutched his head in pain.
‘I went into the bathroom, turned on both taps and put some body wash in them. The bathroom was half full. I put it in the bathroom myself.
I made sure it was okay. He was sitting on the toilet at the time and I asked my sister-in-law to get some Calpol and put it in Coke, since Jayden-Jay wouldn’t have it otherwise.
“He just took a sip and I was surprised because they usually don’t allow him Coke and I thought he would drink more.”
“I went to the bedroom and continued wrapping presents.
‘About five to 10 minutes later, I yelled at Jayden-Jay to ask if he was okay and he said yes.
‘I only had one present left to wrap but I ran out of paper. Her grandmother came to bring the wrapping paper and I asked her to see Jayden-Jay.
“I heard her scream and I ran to the bathroom, she pulled him out of the tub and I started CPR and chest compressions.”
After calling 999, an operator talked to Ms. Johnson about CPR until paramedics arrived and Jayden-Jay was taken to the hospital where he was confirmed dead at 5:20 p.m.
The inquest heard that Newstead Primary Academy pupil Jayden-Jay was born at just 24 weeks old and spent 101 days in a neonatal unit. He was on oxygen for 18 months and had a history of seizures.
In her statement, Mrs. Johnson praised her school.
She said: ‘The teachers were very supportive, had a good relationship and offered one-on-one support.
“He was really moving forward with his work and they allowed him to work his way and really encouraged him.
JJ’s mother, Lisa Johnson, desperately tried to resuscitate the boy (pictured), along with paramedics and NHS staff, but he died at Royal Stoke University Hospital later that day.
“He always did the best he could and went beyond expectations.”
An autopsy was performed on Jayden-Jay which provided a medical cause of death as drowning secondary to a seizure.
