Raw footage shows President Kennedy stepping off a helicopter onto a grassy lawn next to the water. A flood of children, including Caroline and Jack Jr., run to greet the arriving passengers.

Kennedy hugs his jumping children, then greets a visibly pregnant Jacqueline before the video clip ends. The video, from the JFK Presidential Library, has no sound.

The Kennedy's had a third child on Aug. 7, 1963, named Patrick, who died two days later form hyaline membrane disease, today more commonly called infant respiratory distress syndrome. Patrick's death was just three and a half months before Kennedy was assassinated.
