Problems with this one as it is written. It is not a subversion: it does not play bait and switch by making it clear that the baby will be safe, because the baby is always safe in stories, only to kill the character despite the set-up. A child apparently dies without any such set-up, and then it's not clear whether this is a continuity error or a straight example of the trope.

  • Infant Immortality: Subverted. The young son of a family which stops in Potter's Bluff is killed along with his parents, but turns up in the main character's wife's class a few days later.

The point of examples is to flesh out the trope with specifics. We need details in order to list 'em. Please see How to Write an Example for more on fleshing these ones out before returning them to the article.
