Healthy 14 Week Old Infant Gets 8 Vaccines and Dies Within 24 Hours
Matthew and Angeline Le Grange of South Africa recently lost their youngest son, Malakai, to eight vaccines on September 22nd, 2018. He was only three and a half months old. Malakai was a vibrant, happy, and healthy baby boy leading up to his 14 week doctor’s appointment. Within a day of receiving his last round of vaccines at this doctor’s visit, he died.
No family should ever have to bury their child as an outcome of the destructive path of vaccination. Vaccine death stories from shattered families worldwide continue to be expressed, shared, and shouted from every corner of the world, and we have over a dozen vaccine death stories on this website alone. Please listen. Please hear their truth through their agony, grief, and tears. The pain of what these mothers and fathers have endured is unfathomable and unbearable, yet these selfless broken-hearted parents offer their tragedies as a cautionary lesson to anyone who will listen and heed their warning.
The Le Grange’s share their raw painful experience and horrendous tragedy in their own words below, followed by a question and answer exchange.
Malakai Le Grange was born on the 12th of June 2018 at the Pretoria West Hospital in Pretoria, South Africa, weighing 4.1kgs (9 pounds, 4 ounces) and measuring 55cm (21.65″). Our healthy big boy was breastfed and growing fast. He had a bit of colic, but other than that he was full of smiles.
On the 21st of September, he was taken to a Dis-Chem Clinic for his 14 week check up and vaccinations. He was given the Rotavirus orally, PCV (Prevenar 13) in his right thigh, and a third dose of the Hexavalent (DTaP-IPV-Hib-HBV) in his left thigh.
*His vaccine records show at birth he received the BCG (Tuberculosis) vaccine and first dose of OPV. At 6 weeks, he was given a second OPV dose, his first dose of Rotavirus, PCV (Prevenar 13), and the first dose of Hexavalent (DTaP-IPV-Hib-HBV). At his 10 week visit, he received the second dose of the Hexavalent (DTaP-IPV-Hib-HBV).
The nurse instructed Angeline to give him a dose of Calpol 3.5ml when we returned home. Angeline was alone with Malakai when the nurse gave the injections; the nurse was quite rough as she pulled his legs to inject him and she manhandled his body.
Roughly two hours after Malakai got his injections, Angeline gave him a 2ml dose of Calpol and he was closely monitored as he wasn’t himself. We considered this normal as our first born son, Zachariah (20 months old), was usually groggy after getting his vaccinations done.
Malakai stayed up a bit later than usual that night and we played with him. He had just started shouting and laughing, so we entertained him, tickled his toes, and enjoyed his new giggle and noise. At around 3:00 a.m. on the 22nd of September, he had his last full feed from mom. Matthew woke up at around 4 a.m. and slept on the couch when Malakai had woken up for a demand feed. At around 6:45 a.m., Angie woke up feeling something in her womb and knew something was wrong. She noticed Malakai wouldn’t wake up and wasn’t breathing. Then I rushed Malakai to Matthew, and he immediately tried to perform CPR, and noticed his lungs were clogged up.
We got in the car and drove as fast as we could to the nearest hospital which was a few kilometers away. We took Malakai to casualty and the doctor and nurses urgently tried to resuscitate him. After what felt like days, the doctors came in and told us that they have tried the best they can, but at this point there hasn’t been enough oxygen in the brain for a while now and they must stop. They called his death at 08:10 a.m. September 22nd, 2018.
The nurses allowed us a private room to say goodbye to our boy while they called for the coroner and the police to remove his body and open a police report as they said his death was unnatural.
There was a miscommunication between the police and the hospital, so we waited in that cold room with our son for almost four hours. We held his little hands as they went ice cold and stiff. There were tubes coming out his mouth filled with blood and mucus.
His body was removed and had to be taken for an autopsy to establish the cause of death. Our lives had been destroyed. We lost our son and we still had to be strong for our first born who was watching his mom and dad break apart. He kept asking for his brother Kai.
Matthew went to identify Malakai’s body at the state mortuary. The pathologist wanted to speak to him in private. She first wanted background information on the pregnancy and asked him how long was the baby sick for. She sounded shocked when Matthew told her he was perfectly fine before the vaccinations. She hadn’t found the cause of death, but she found swelling on the brain, a build of fluid on the brain, and found contusions on his lungs and they were heavily congested. She had taken all the necessary samples and had sent them away to the lab. Matthew was then led to another room to identify him.
Matthew: I looked through a small glass window and there was my boy, wrapped in
state hospital blankets. He still looked so peaceful but his lips were purple. The pathologist was kind enough to cover up the parts of his body that she cut open for the autopsy. I just saw his face; I saw my own face and my wife’s face there too. No father or mother should see their child that way.
An investigating officer contacted Angie and took her statement. He was going to get all the statements and get the investigation sorted out as soon as possible. But he did warn her that the blood results and other samples taken, could take up to nine years to complete as there are problems with the forensic department in South Africa.
Almost a month later, our lives have been torn apart, dealing with the trauma of trying to resuscitate our dead son. Identifying his body in the morgue has caused us a lot of depression and fatigue. We’ve been getting in touch with a lot of moms who also recently lost a child due to “SIDS” or unknown causes. ALL of them lost their children within 24 hours after receiving vaccinations. We try and help them get through each day if possible, but we ourselves struggle each moment, wondering if our lives can ever return to normal.
Malakai was a healthy baby before his injections. We took a video of him that night before he passed away and you can see him lifting his body up and laughing with us. Seeing his body lifeless has made us feel like we are going crazy.
Q&A with Matthew and Angeline:
Q: Were you aware of the risks of vaccinating prior to Malakai?
Le Grange’s: We had heard some information about vaccines being harmful to children. When Zachariah, our oldest, was born I tried to stop the midwife from giving him injections right after birth, but she informed us both if we refuse the vaccine we cannot leave the hospital with the baby. We had no idea up until now when we are actually researching what they are giving to our babies.
When Zachariah had his earlier injections we would notice he would be uncomfortable and irritable immediately after receiving them. We thought this to be normal as we are told most children behave this way after vaccinations.
Q: Did your doctor provide you with the full vaccine package inserts which shows all the risks, contraindications, and extended info? And/or did the doctor offer any information about the risks, including death to vaccination prior to your son being vaccinated?
Le Grange’s: We weren’t provided with any information. After his death, I had requested that clinic send me the package inserts and they have still not provided me with them. I have obtained online copies of them.
Q: Have you received the autopsy results yet? (Brain swelling (encephalopathy) is listed in the vaccine adverse reaction list on many of the inserts.)
Le Grange’s: We haven’t received the official report yet and the cause of death is still under investigation. Due the back logs with the South African forensic laboratories, we could wait up to 9 years for the toxicology and histology results.
Q: What advice or recommendations do you have for other families and parents?
Le Grange’s: I would advise them to do thorough research on vaccines and any medications any government wants to give out to its people. Don’t be intimidated by society shaming you for wanting to know more information or deciding not to give vaccines to your children. We have paid the highest price by blindly following instructions from our country’s health care system.
Q: Is your older son up-to-date on his vaccines? Since Malakai’s passing, are you continuing vaccination plans for your older child and your household? And if so, or not, why or why not?
Le Grange’s: He is up to date on his vaccines and only needs one at 6 years old and 12 years. We are not going to take him for those vaccinations as we believe these vaccines are not necessary and they have not been properly tested enough to be given to any human being. Losing our son has made us even more protective over our first born and we definitely will not continue them. The risks of giving these vaccines far outweigh any good that can come out of it.
Q: Are there any programs in South Africa to report adverse vaccine reactions/injuries/death? Is there any accountability or liability for the doctors there? (In the US, we have the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) that was passed in 1986 releasing liability from the vaccine manufacturers.)
Le Grange’s: Yes, we can report adverse reactions in South Africa. However, from a legal point of view, we cannot even try and take the clinic or vaccine company to court as no lawyer will assist us. Almost every firm we have approached tells us that the legal costs are too high and they will outweigh any compensation given, if any.
Q: Is there anything else you’d like to share?
Le Grange’s: Since our Malakai passed away we have met a lot of beautiful people that helped us work through the first few weeks of trauma and we are really grateful for that. We have also been in touch with a lot of moms from around the world who have also lost their babies within 24 hours of receiving a vaccine. Something is wrong with all these healthy babies dying. It’s not rare or uncommon this is happening every day. Our children are dying. We have to save each other.
May Malakai’s catastrophic story and short-lived precious life raise awareness and open hearts and minds to the grave reality and regularity of vaccine-induced deaths and injuries.
Please leave your condolences below for the Matthew and Angeline and hold them in your heart as they continue to mourn their son, Malakai.
~ In loving memory of Malakai Le Grange (June 12 – Sept 22, 2018) ~

Most sincere condolences to this family. Keeping you all in my prayers. God bless you and your angel baby. ??
I’m so sorry for your loss. We couldn’t possibly understand how you feel, this is heartbreaking and never should have happened to your family.
Words can say how sorry I am for your loss and trauma. I believe my son and I were both injured by vaccines. God will deal with big pharma and those in cohoots with big pharmaceutical pushing and trying to force parents and adults to be poisoned.
Forgive me, meant to say words cannot express.
God bless you in your tragic story. I am completely anti-vaccination. Certainly not in newborns. May God’s peace be with you.
Sigh…..what can one say? Their little boy is gone….nothing will bring him back….he died a very sick baby. i have a daughter who is an R.N. One of her patients had the flu shot….felt VERY sick that evening and worsened through the night….by morning she had Bell’s Palsy….it never went away completely….I feel these vaccinations, be it pediatric or adult, need more testing….please do not give a child so much in one day…..go slowly……a lost child can never be replaced….
My sincere condolences for your loss!!! May God give you comfort, strength and encouragement as you stay strong for your firstborn. May you always feel God’s loving arms embrace you.
So very sorry for your loss
My daughter is working tirelessly in educating people about the consequences of vaccines…….
I feel very sorry for that family and pray for their babies soul however, for every one child you find that ends up like this I can show you 10 more who grow up happy, healthy, and fully vaccinated including my own who had to have extra vaccinations before he was aged 2 because we immigrated from England and our son needed some that England don’t require while he also had vaccinations that England require that the US don’t. He’s in college now.
Just because every 10 are fine for every 1 dying, does NOT MAKE IT SAFE or even whatsoever convincing! Glad it worked out for u, but come on, that is n not the right thing to say, on here.
Shame on you Joan. Really felt the need to get that remark in to a grieving mother?!!! Go away troll.
Your loss is the greatest; but JESUS will carry you. My question is why give all these shots in such a short time frame?
Jesus will always make things better after they go tragically wrong(sarcasticly said) …. If he exists then why is this world such a horrible place where the worst most excruciating things keep happening to the innocent ? Jesus is a joke
My heart goes out to your Family! I can’t imagine what you are going through.
I am sending love and prayers your way. I cannot even imagine.. But i have experienced some personal pain, and from that I know that what you’re going through cannot be measured. Peace and love -Chelsea
What was the reason Angeline didn’t follow the nurses instructions? She was told to administer 3.5 ml of Calpol, but instead gave 2 ml
What a heartless, STUPID comment to make! Research has proven that administering Calpol(Tylenol) makes matters WORSE, not better.
My heart is hurting. I’m so sorry for your loss. I have had both my kids vaccinated with no problems. But I’m now concerned about what I am hearing. I hope you get answers soon. Love from the UK. XX
Truly so sorry for your loss. I had so often wondered and questioned about these vaccines. I am 53yrs old and growing up I didn’t get nearly as many vaccines as the kids these days.. I saw years ago on 20/20 about a vaccine that did harm to babies. China took this shot of the market.
Also please be aware of that NEW shot that’s given to teens that PmR shot I think that’s what it is,
Sorry, I got sidetracked, May y’all have comfort and peace. No parent needs to go through this pain and heartache.. what a beautiful baby.. My heart goes out
Thank you for sharing your story, I am so deeply sorry for your unimaginable loss. I hope you (the whole family) can find peace and I also hope that people will open their eyes to the horrific truth about vaccines and stop making excuses for the greedy monsters that perpetuate the senseless killing of our babies. May you find strength and use your pain to help others
Condolences to you both. God’s got you.
I’m so sorry for yalls ,it’s heartbreaking.we lost our Lil Gavin last year ,he got his two months shots,came home ,he started from that moment acting different and five days later he was gone.my daughter and husband tried CPR and he’s was already gone autopsy done and it’s undetermined. It’s been tough for all of us.we believe in our hearts it was to many for gavins Lil body to take in.i really am against the mandatory vaccines.i know he’s among all the other beautiful angels. My heart hurts for yall.hugs and love
Is this all truth?
My condolences to the parents of Malakai, that’s a heart wrenching story.
I think babies are too young to be given vaccines the mothers colostrum is the first line of defence for their immune system ie breast feeding, then just before going to school have the important vaccines like polio if it’s still a problem or nothing if there aren’t ant deadly childhood diseases around, I only was vaccinated with smallpox vaccine and still have the scar and was probably older when I got it because I remember being vaccinated. I survived chicken pox, measles scarlet fever, mumps, and God knows what else we all got as kids in those days.
My prayers are with you and your family. May God hold you in his arms as you deal with this unspeakable Loss
I am so sorry for your lose. I truly appreciate you sharing your story.
Clearly , healthy babies do not just die. They die when dangerous vaccines are injected in to them . I don’t care what are the statistics of how many live and how many die , these are our children, if even one dies then there is a problem which cannot be ignored, and I wish people would stop defending a science which is not properly researched or backed up. I send my deep love and prayers to this family and others who have lost their precious children.
I’m so terribly sorry for your loss! Thank you for making your story public. This needs to be told & all the stories of children injured or killed by vaccines! My daughter received her first set of vaccines when she was just a few weeks old. By late that afternoon she had a fever of 105. I couldn’t even hardly touch her, every little touch caused her to cry in pain. I very gently dabbed her body with cotton balls dipped in alcohol, to get her fever down. This went on for hours! The doctor wanted to give her the next dose later when it was time! I had researched & found out she probably would have died if I gave her another dose, because she had such a severe reaction! But, the dr., didn’t seem to even care! I couldn’t believe it, but I didn’t let them give her another vaccine. I praise the Lord, she was spared. She had no lifelong issues that we could see, at least! I don’t know why people go so crazy when this is brought up? These terrible things really do happen! I’m so so so very sorry for your loss ?!
I have a six month old son, so your son’s story is VERY relevant!
I cannot began to imagine what you, and your other son are feeling. All I can do is express my sorrow to you, and pray. ????✝️❤️
Im soo incredibly sorry for your loss reading ur story has brought great sadness to my heart! He is with god now! Doesnt make any sense why god wud bless u wit m then take him away so suddenly! I have 2 daughters my youngest 8yo they force u here in us to get shots or they can’t attend school! I think it should be the parents choice! But i wanted to say sorry n my heart pours out for yall! Give ur son all the love you have left n never take a single second for granted!
Michelle Taylor, don’t blame God for something that was caused by humans. Stop being ignorant!
Nanya you are the ignorant one for saying that!
My deep condolences? Thank you for sharing your story for others awareness
My deepest condolences to the 3 of u, since it could take 9yrs for blood report is there any legal way u could send a sample to another country ( U.S , AUS or ENGLAND) & sue the doctor , may your beautiful little boy fly high with the Angels ??????
This has totally put me off getting vaccinations for my 4month daughter. This is not the first time I’ve heard of babies die from getting vaccinations. God bless yr son Malakai sorry for yr loss.
Condolences to Mathew and Angeline. Malakai’s death is a calling for us to be vigilant about this vaccination. May you live with the inspiration to be vigilant about not only for your children but for all. Blessings!
I am so, so sorry. My third baby had a reaction to DPT which started me researching and quit every shot after that. My last 3 were so much healthier it was amazing! However, my fourth ended up committing suicide from a prescription drug at the age of 30 (just 5 months ago yesterday). I didn’t even know he was on it until after. My heart goes out to you as I know the hurt first hand. . .keep your faith strong as that gives the best comfort.
My second son also had a bad reaction to DPT shot. It was his first one. He wasn’t given any other vaccines and he never got any of the diseases they were supposed to protect him from. It’s been my experience measles vaccines are worthless as they do not protect from measles anyway.
My sympathy for the death of your son to suicide. My family also has experienced that trauma. Peace be with you.
So sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers.
Sorry you where forced into these vaccines this is now starting to happen in the us where doctors are not allowed to give medical exemptions so immune compromised people now have to say good bye and get shots that WILL kill them. I wish the governments of the world would stop forcing this on people. God Bless your family and may peace find you
I am so sorry! My heart breaks for you and your family. For all the families who habe been inured and or had lost their babies. My Son has been vaccine injured as well. He deals with Autism and is akmost fully vaccinated has now 6. My Daughter who will be 1 has been vaccinated to her 4 months vaccines. Thank GOD! I have been researching! I no longer vaccinate. I pray for everyone’s eyes to be open to the truth of these deadly vaccines!
My cousin went deaf and mute after the MMR vaccine. Mone of our next generation are vaccinated.
So very sorry for your loss. This is a terrible tragedy and injustice. My heart and prayers are with you and your family.
I am so terribly sorry to hear of such a great loss. I thank you for sharing your story. It makes me wonder if this is what caused my granddaughter to develop hydrocephalus at 2 months old, which resulted in brain surgery. It’s not fair that these doctors, and society makes us feel like we don’t have a choice in the vaccine matter and even with a choice… it’s so difficult to know what to do. My heart goes out to you.
My son died within 12 hours of having the MMR Vaccine but his death was classed as a cot death. I truly believe if I had not let him have the MMR Vaccine he would still be alive ?
Please accept my sincere condolences concerning the death of your beautiful baby, Malakai. I am very sorry for your loss. I will pray the Rosary with you both and Zachariah in my heart. I truly believe God needs your tears to soothe His aching heart due to the babies who are rejected and are left to die because they survived an abortion. I was horrified in reading your story. Eight vaccines on an infant seems extreme to me. My heart goes out to Matthew, Angeline and Zachariah.
My deepest condolences. I pray Malakai’s rest in peace in heaven and pray for you too.
I’m sitting here with tears trailing down my face at your loss and suffering, something no parent should ever have to face. My heart and prayers are with you as you process your grief and use such tragedy to help inform others.
I am so sorry you lost your baby. My experience is almost the same, although my son lived. He was 2 months old, and within 2 hours of receiving 6 vaccines, his father called me to tell me our boy, Luka James, was blue, unresponsive and limp. We got him to the hospital in time, although he started seizing, and his brain had been hemmoraging. Our son is healthy now and growing properly with some developmental delays he will grow out of, but we lost custody. His father was arrested and spent 6 weeks in jail. And is now serving one year of house arrest (5 months remaining) and 2 years of probation (1 year 5 months left) and has a no contact order with our son until probation is up. Our son will be 3 before he meets his father again. He last saw our son dying, on life support, and unable to open his eyes, and never again since. I fully believe the vaccines are to blame. Neither myself, or my sons father abused our son, or put him in harm’s way, yet we still lost him for doing our best to save his life.
Absolutely dreadful tell of a heart-breaking real life event.
So sick of bearing witness to the madness and stupidity of what our idiot government gets up to!!
My granddaughter was a healthy and very smart ,born 1986 had all her baby shots , after her 2 yr. birthday , she came down with what they called Lukenodesterphy , whole top of brain was deteriorated , she lived till she was 15 like that , lived off the stem of her brain , unable to move very ridged ,they did autopsy on her took almost 2 yrs. sent it all over the world and found out that one of her vaccine shots had killed most of her ketones
You are lovely parents who deserved better support& help regarding the vaccine programme.
I think that the least a person can do is to limit the amount of vaccines that you baby gets at one time and to delay vaccines because many of the problems come from getting them too early. As long as they get them by the time they are in Kindergarten you are good to go. It’s kind of a compromise. Another thing you can do is look at the unnecessary ones like the rotovirus one and just refuse that one. The best thing to do is to read about each one. Look at the studies and see if the benefits outweigh the side effects.
I am working on raising awareness of vaccine risks and to stop mandatory vaccination. I am now also working on getting Catholic Church leaders to not take away religious exemptions for vaccines. In MO where religious exemptions are allowed, a bishop is refusing religious exemptions for Catholics in his diocese, even though he is allowing non-Catholics to use religious exemptions to attend Catholic schools. Hugs and prayers!
I am heartbroken for you. You’ll be in my heart and prayers. ❤️❤️❤️
I know you love your second child with all your heart just as you do your first. My deepest sympathy for your loss. I have been working for increased vaccination safety and to oppose mandatory vaccinations. I’m so glad that you have received support from other parents who have suffered loss. Of all the losses we can experience the loss of a child is the worst. God bless you and your son and comfort you.
Condolences to Malikai’s parents. May Malikai rest in peace. I pray and wish they stop all the vaccines that have bad side effects. My youngest of 3 sons developed Autism and we know deep inside that the last set of vaccines at 18 months had caused it.
Vaccines do NOT cause autism ?
Yes they do!!!! And so much more.
Oh my God I’m so sad I can’t even tell you how heart broken I am. I am almost 100% sure that some of these vaccines are causing some sort of allergic reactions, or are too strong for these babies. I think even possibly someone could be poisoning these vaccines. Anything is possible. Don’t give up do your research. But just know people all over the world send their love and support. My condolences. God bless. ❤️
I have 2 vaccine injured kids that are now 16 and 17. I stopped vaccinating when my son was 15 months and my daughter at 6 months. Both kids suffered with “atypical” measles from the MMR my son received. Yes, both kids damaged as a result of one vaccine. They are now super healthy and happy but are brain damaged and officially diagnosed as Autism and Intellectual disability. They will need lifelong supervision. No family should suffer the loss of an infant because of corporate greed. I cry for this baby and family the same as I do for all the damaged kids out there. We need to stop the insanity of it all!
My great nephew ended up blind in one eye after seizure from numerous vaccinations in one day!
