Carter Cookson died in hospital on Saturday night

A three week-old baby who has died in darkness of a heart structure, his parents have said.

Carter Cookson, who was born prematurely on Boxing Day with heart problems, had arrested three heralders and was on a life support machine.

His parents Sarah and Chris Cookson had a social media party to find a donor.

But on Saturday she sent on Facebook to "get his angel wings".

Mrs Cookson's post, 44, said her "cheering baby" Carter "could no longer fight" and died at 17:44 GMT.

The parents also deliver on & # 39; Find a Heart for Carter & # 39; a side, saying: "Thanks for everyone who has helped to try and find Carter gift, we will be forever."

In 2013, wife and wife, Cookson, lost her first son, Charlie, aged two.

He died from a discovery state – unconnected to Carter's – that caused troubles with his muscles and bones and his immune system.

Writing on Facebook says: "We are heartbreaking … our two boys are in the sky without their Mammy and Daddy we feel so low and our hearts will never repeat.

"No more pine ood, No longer tubes..be free with your big brother and Granda … until we can all be together again."

Thousands of people published their condolences at the social media scene under a recent Carter photo.

  • Baby & # 39; has hours to find new heart & # 39;
  • PM & # 39; s panting for baby that needs new heart

The Cooksons, of South Shields, South Tyneside, launched a call to find a new heart for Carter after he said that a transplant was his only hope.

Their plea for another donor for Carter was partly involved in social media.

On Friday, they received doctors at Newcastle's Freeman Hospital to advise them on that time.

The past week, Emma Lewell-Buck has been requesting & # 39; a prime minister listed.

Theresia May considered it a "tragic cause" and marks the "opt-out" share system by the following year.

A candlelit was probably held outside Carthage outside South Shields Town Hall on Thursday evening.

Mr and Mrs Cookson lend a charity that it supports from families of children with life-understanding illness in 2013 after Charlie's death.
