TRI-CITIES, Wash. (KEPR)-- A firefighter from Washington state and his bride were on their honeymoon when they got the tragic news that their 18-month-old son had died.

A GoFundMe account has now been established to help Nickolas and Nikki Augustavo as they mourn the loss of their little boy, Kaysen.

According to a social media post on the Hanford Fire Department Union Facebook page, the toddler died in his sleep on Tuesday.

The post goes on to say that Nickolas and Nikki had just celebrated their wedding on March 9 and had left little Kaysen behind with family as they left on their honeymoon.

Three days into the honeymoon, the couple heard the tragic news of Kaysen's passing.

Fire department staff members from around the state have reached out to help the family in this difficult time.

A GoFundMe account has been started to help the family.

The account will be used for long-term counseling for Nickolas and Nikki as well as funeral expenses for little Kaysen, groceries and various bills to help them through this transition.
