The baby born after his mother was pronounced dead from a car accident has died today. The baby was born after both parents were killed in an horrific car accident on the way to a New York City hospital, according to CNN on Monday, March 4, 2013.
Just a day after the hit and run car accident claimed both his parent’s lives, the baby becomes the third victim. The infant boy was delivered by cesarean section just a short time after his mother died. Nathan and Raizy Glauber were riding in a cab early Sunday morning when a BMW hit the vehicle at an intersection and the two occupants fled the scene on foot.
The Glaubers were both only 21-years-old and when the expectant mother wasn’t feeling well, the husband and wife got a cab to go to the hospital for Raizy to get checked out medically. The occupants of the BMW that ended the Glauber’s lives are now the target of a massive manhunt.
The infant boy was the firstborn child of Nachman and Raizel Glauber. He was delivered prematurely as his mother was only 7-months-pregnant when she died as a result of this hit and run accident. When the baby was born he was reportedly in serious but stable condition at Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan, according to the New York Post on Sunday. The baby was named after his father.
The loss of this young family has devastated the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community and sparked an urgency in finding those responsible for these deaths. A well-known community leader, who was also a neighbor of the deceased couple, said today, “We are looking at the prosecutor; we want the people responsible charged with triple homicide, nothing less." Isaac Abraham went on to say that the young couple were “"preparing for the most joyous moment in life, to become parents, ready to build a castle to the future and build a family."
Abraham also had a message for the driver of the BMW that ended this young couple’s life and resulting in the death of the newborn baby:
"The message to the driver: We know law enforcement is going to get to you," he said. "But our message is give yourself up before we find you."
This has caused the close-knit Hasidic community in Brooklyn much heartache, which was evident as many from the community mourned their deaths at a funeral service held Sunday.
