Oliver became an Internet sensation after his mother dressed him in a white hair wig with big black glasses to look like presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

The Centers for Disease Control said SIDS occurs “suddenly and unexpectedly” and kills approximately 3,500 infants every year. It mostly happens “while the infant is sleeping in an unsafe sleeping environment.”
