There was another tragic turn in the heartbreaking story of the New Zealand mother who lost her newborn son to a fatal dog jam.
Little Jackson was born on Saturday and was dogged on Sunday at the family home in Hamilton.
He died in Waikato Hospital about 24 hours later.
Now it turns out that the baby’s father died in April and didn’t even know he was a father New Zealand Herald Reports.
The baby’s paternal grandparents did not find out about the newborn until they received a call from a hospital midwife asking them to go to the hospital.
“She told us the baby was ‘beautiful’ and a ‘good’ boy … he was bitten, but he was still alive,” Vera Zabiyaka told the sales point.
“We didn’t even know the baby was born at that point.”
On Sunday, the baby’s mother had gone to the bathroom when the family dog was dragging the baby into the garden – where the pet apparently tried to bury it.
After the newborn’s death, the mother posted a message online that she wished she could “turn back time”.
“The baby was left alone with two dogs that were in the house,” Zabiyaka told the New Zealand Herald.

The baby’s father, Anton Zabiyaka, had spent four years in prison after committing drug offenses, assaults and robbery.
He was released in December 2016 but took his own life in April that year.
“It’s hard to accept that your son is dead, but as a grandmother, I can’t really believe what happened – losing two members of your family in a matter of months is unthinkable,” said Zabiyaka.
The Zabikaya family – Vera, her husband Victor, son Anton and one other son – moved from Russia to New Zealand in 1997 to “lead a better life”.
“I think if he knew he was going to be a father he would still be here. Prison doesn’t make people better, ”said Zabiyaka.
Hamilton City Council holds the two dogs, including a Rottweiler, in hand, but a decision has not yet been made whether they will be destroyed.
A report of the baby’s death is drawn up for the coroner.
