A newborn baby boy who was delivered by emergency cesarean section after his parents were killed in a horrific hit-and-run crash in New York City has died, reports CBS. The baby’s death was confirmed by community leader Isaac Abraham.
The boy, who only weighed four pounds, died early Monday morning as police continue to search for the driver of a BMW and a passenger who fled the scene of the crash.
Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21, were looking forward to welcoming their first child into their tight-knit Orthodox community.
On Saturday, Raizy Glauber, who was 7 months pregnant, decided to go to the hospital because she wasn’t feeling well, relatives said.
The Glaubers called a car service to take them because they didn’t own a car.
As the couple headed to a hospital, a BMW smashed into their livery cab in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.
