A LOWESTOFT couple are coming to terms with the death of their one-year-old daughter, who died in her cot while the family were living in Brunei.
Pixie Wilson was discovered by her mother Emily in the garrison home they were living in at the South Asian country.
The family had moved overseas after the youngster’s father Warrant Officer Mark Wilson, an army sergeant major, had been posted to work there.
An inquest in Norwich on Monday heard that Mrs Wilson, 33, found the lifeless body of her daughter in her cot at around 10.30pm on July 3.
Despite efforts to revive her by the emergency services, she was pronounced dead at the scene.
An original post mortem had indicated uncertainties surrounding the exact cause of death of the youngster.
But recording a verdict of death by natural causes, Norfolk coroner William Armstrong said there were no circumstances to suggest anything other than that verdict.
The family have now returned to Lowestoft, where the youngster was born in June last year.
The couple, who were both at the inquest, said they did not wish to comment on her death at this time.
