11.01.130 Inheritance by Representation

Inheritance or succession by right of representation takes place when the decedents of any deceased heir take the same share or right in the estate of another-person that their parents would have taken if living. A child born after the death of a parent inherits from that parent as if he had been born in the lifetime of such parent and survived him.
