Pregnant platy dying from fry getting stuck in the vent

One of my platy's died from a fry getting stuck in the vent. Is that common in platy's and could my other 2 die?

i used to have platys when i was younger, they reproduced just fine and didn't have that problem at all. i am sorry about the death of your poor platy :( i hope that your other two have a better birthing then this poor platy did.

never stop learning, as new things are discovered everyday.
