Infant survives after expectant couple die in New York car crash

| No Comments

A pregnant Brooklyn woman and her husband died Sunday after the livery cab they were riding in was hit by another vehicle, however their unborn child survived, the Las Vegas Sun said.

Their baby boy was delivered prematurely after his mother's death, and survived, The New York Times said.

Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21, and their driver were struck by a BMW in the Williamsburg neighborhood in Brooklyn on their way to the hospital because Raizy Glauber was not feeling well, the Las Vegas Sun said. The driver and a passenger of the BMW fled the scene, and have not been found, The New York Times said.

Raizy Glauber was thrown from the car and landed under a parked trailer nearby, her husband was pinned in the car and emergency workers cut the roof off to get him out, the Las Vegas Sun said. Both were pronounced dead at hospitals from blunt-force trauma and the driver was in stable condition, the Las Vegas Sun said.

The couple's baby was listed in serious condition at Bellevue Hospital, a community leader told The New York Times.
