Mike Rinder's child died from what is usually (in the US) called "crib
death" which is merely the still-unexplained phenomenon of newborns
or very young babies suddenly dying for no reason. 

What may not be known is that Rinder was in Los Angeles when his child
died in Florida. He requested a leave to go to his wife. DM refused it and
Rinder was told to stay at work. He did and he rightfully carries the
memory to this day of how DM treated the death of his child.
