IMO there a chance simply because there's no good reason she would up and leave her son in the jungle and go hang out with Christian unless she was dead and Christian explained that to her. Why would a perfectly normal person react like that?
On the other hand, before on the island, when someone dies, they just die (as far as we know). They don't walk around while others interact with them as if nothing was wrong and suddenly realize they are dead for whatever reason.
