Hassan Osman, played by Michael Evangelou, is the first son of Ali Osman and Sue Osman , who is only a baby during his short time in EastEnders. Hassan dies in his sleep of cot death on 20 June 1985; no official causes of death are given. Sue is left in a state of shock after her son's death. She remains in a trance like state for weeks, refusing to eat, sleep, cry or acknowledge her own grief. She later begins blaming herself unfairly for her son's sudden and unexplainable death.
Her mental health continues to deteriorate and she becomes despondent towards Ali and their marriage disintegrates in a welter of depression. Sue eventually manages to come to terms with Hassan's death with the help of Harold Legg, who takes the desperate measure of placing Mary Smith's baby, Annie Smith, in her lap, finally allowing her to acknowledge her pent-up sadness.
