First Calf Crop

I've got a question, not really the proper forum to post this in, but thought it might get good response. Those of you who know of my operation, know I don't have any livestock at this time. When my folks sold out, my 14 year old nephew ( who lives on a farm and is 100% farmboy) wanted to start a small herd, so his grandpa gave him 10 heifers. Kind of a jump start if you will. Well this morning he lost his first calf and feels that he has let his late Grandpa down. How do we keep this kid encouraged?

From what I was told, he did everything correct. Ran her in the barn last night, set his alarm and checked on her every 2.5 hours. When he went out at 0530, the calf had been born, but already dead.
