A midnight car crash in New York killed two expectant parents who were heading to the hospital on Sunday. Their baby was rescued from her dead mother’s womb by Cesarean section and is in critical condition, police say. Nathan and Raizy Glauber, both 21, were riding in a livery cab in Brooklyn. A BMW, crashed into the cab at an intersection, slamming into its side, at about 12:10 a.m. Sunday.
The two occupants of the BMW fled the scene on foot. The Glaubers were soon pronounced dead at two different hospitals, said Sgt. Tom Antonetti, a police spokesman. Bellevue Hospital performed a C-section to rescue the baby. At the time of the crash, the couple was on the way to Long Island College Hospital “for a wellness check,” said Officer Sophia Tassy-Mason, a spokeswoman for the New York City Police Department. The couple had been married for less than a year, said Barry Sekete, a cousin of one of the victims.
The community is working to make sure the baby boy gets all the medical attention he needs, Abraham said. The child will be taken care of by family, friends, and the community, he said. “The message to the driver: We know law enforcement is going to get to you,” Abraham to CNN affliate WABC. “But our message is give yourself up before we find you.” Investigators were talking with the car’s registered owner on Sunday, Tassy-Mason said. Tassy-Mason said she did not know whether the vehicle had been stolen or what the relationship was between the car’s owner and its occupants.
