Sharon Stone’s 11-month-old nephew and godson River has died, just days after he was found in his crib suffering ‘severe organ failure’ that left him in a coma.

‘My nephew and godson River Stone was found in his crib w[sic] total organ failure today. Please pray for him. We need a miracle,’ she wrote at the time, while posting an image of River lying in a hospital bed while hooked up to numerous medical devices.
