NBC News’ Richard Engel’s Young Son Passes Away

There is nothing worse for a parent than having to bury their child.

It is tough enough when they get to see them grow up, but to have to bury a child who is only six years old, I cannot imagine.

Sadly, that news came out this week regarding the son of NBC News foreign correspondent Richard Engel.

His 6-year-old boy Henry has lost his battle with a rare brain disorder.

Rett Syndrome

Henry had Rett Syndrome, which can slow natural development and cause loss of “purposeful use of the hands, distinctive hand movements, slowed brain and head growth, problems with walking, seizures, and intellectual disability.”

Engel, on the death of his son, stated, “Our beloved son Henry passed away. He had the softest blue eyes, an easy smile and a contagious giggle. We always surrounded him with love and he returned it, and so much more. Mary and Richard.”

He later added, “Researchers are making amazing progress using Henry’s cells to help cure RETT Syndrome so others don’t have to endure this terrible disease.”

Engel has been with NBC News since 2003, being promoted to Chief Foreign Correspondent in 2008.

Our thoughts go out to his family during this sad time.

Rest in peace, Henry.
