There have been many sad times on the soap since its inception so we’ve compiled a list of the top disappointing moments on DOOL!

It’s never easy when a character dies, so, when a child passes on it can be that much more devastating for fans.

His half-sister Chelsea was the one recklessly driving said vehicle that hit and ultimately killed the child.
