Baby Born after Parents Killed in Hit-and-Run Accident

Baby Born after Parents Killed in Hit-and-Run Accident

A baby delivered after his parents were killed in a Brooklyn hit-and-run accident died early Monday, a community spokesman said.

Isaac Abraham, who serves as a spokesman for the family’s Orthodox Jewish  community, said the child died around 5:30 a.m.

Police were searching for the driver of a BMW and a passenger who fled on foot after slamming into a livery cab, killing the young pregnant woman and her  husband.

“This guy’s a coward and he should pay his price,” said Abraham, adding that  the community wants a homicide prosecution.

Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21, were looking forward to welcoming their  first child into their tight-knit community of Orthodox Jews.

The horrific auto accident happened in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn as the  couple headed to a hospital.

The engine of the livery car ended up in the backseat, where Raizy Glauber,  who was seven months pregnant, was sitting before she was ejected, Abraham said.  Her body landed under a parked tractor-trailer, said witnesses who raced to the  scene after the crash. Nachman Glauber was pinned in the car, and emergency  workers had to cut off the roof to get him out, witnesses said.

The Glaubers both were pronounced dead at hospitals, and the medical examiner  said they died of blunt-force trauma. Doctors had delivered the baby by cesarean  section.
