This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
Nicholas Coke was born with anencephaly, an incredibly rare defect that kept him from growing a brain as a fetus.
Obviously, doctors expected him to die within minutes, but Nicholas shocked everyone when he refused to let go.
Sadly, Nicholas eventually gave up the fight on Wednesday. He just stopped breathing and was unable to be revived.
We're so sad to hear of his passing, but we're still amazed by how long the little guy held on.
