Updated with Video:Heartbreaking....New York couple die in car crash en route to hospital to have 1st baby;child delivered at scene and survives

Newborn File Phot
How heartbreaking, saying prayers for the little one who will never get to know his parents. I'm sure they loved him with all their hearts. May their baby survive and have a full recovery and have family nearby to love and cherish them as their parents would have and teach them about their loving parents.

I pray they catch the person who drove into them and cowardly took off. I wouldn't doubt it was an illegal immigrant, a drunk driver or a person without a license or with some other criminal record.

Update 3/4/13:

Police are seeking this man in connection with the hit and run which killed the parents and the newborn child in a deadly accident on Sunday night. Is he a possible illegal alien immigrant or someone with a criminal past who was let go too soon as I predicted in the beginning?

Update 3/3/13 NY Daily News:

Nachman and Raizel Glauber, both 21, were rushing to Long Island College Hospital in Cobble Hill because Glauber, seven months pregnant, was experiencing pains, according to cops and relatives.

"They were excited to start a family,” said Sarah Gluck, Nachman’s cousin. “They were always glowing.”

The couple was riding in the back of a black 2008 Toyota Camry livery cab heading west on Wilson St. when a gray 2010 BMW sedan speeding north on Kent Ave. slammed into the cab at the Williamsburg intersection about 12:30 a.m., cops said.

The impact from the T-bone collision sent the livery cab spinning onto the median and ejected the pregnant Glauber into the street, her body coming to rest under a parked tractor trailer.

First responders had to cut the roof off the Toyota Camry to extricate Nachman Glauber and the livery driver.

Raizel Glauber was rushed to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan, where doctors performed an emergency C-section on the dying mother and were able to deliver the baby boy.

The infant is in serious condition in the intensive care unit at Bellevue Hospital and expected to survive, officials said.

Raizel Glauber, 21, and husband Nachman Glauber, 21, were killed in the crash — but their baby boy was saved after an emergency C-section.

Nachman Glauber was taken to Beth Israel hospital, where he died. The 32-year-old livery cab driver was taken to Bellevue Hospital with minor injuries, cops said.

The driver of the BMW, along with a passenger, abandoned their car and fled on foot, police said.

The driver of the BMW reportedly ran from the scene on foot.

The registered owner of the BMW, a Bronx man, was questioned by cops Sunday morning. Investigators do not believe he was in the vehicle Saturday night.

Relatives of the couple will raise the miracle baby.

“There’s a big family on both sides,” said Gluck. “The baby’s going to get a lot of love.”

The infant will be named after his dead father, who was studying at Rabbinical College of Bnei Shimon Yisroel of Shopron in Williamsburg, family friends said.

“God only takes the good people,” said fellow student Moshe Meisels, 21. “I couldn’t sleep the whole night knowing it was Nachman.”

After his own marriage, Nachman Glauber organized fellow students to donate $100 each for a classmate’s wedding, pals said.

“He had a golden heart,” one classmate said. “Every day he came in with a smile.”


ABC News:

A young Jewish Orthodox couple en route to a hospital to have their first child were killed in a car crash early Sunday, but their child survived. 
Nathan and Raizy Glauber, both 21, were using a car service to go to the hospital when another vehicle crashed into the side of theirs at an intersection in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, said Hasidic community activist Isaac Abraham. Nathan Glauber was pronounced dead at Beth Israel Hospital, while his wife died at Bellevue, police said. 
The couple's son was delivered at the scene and was taken to a hospital in serious condition, said Abraham, who is also a neighbor of Raizy Glauber's parents and lives two blocks from the scene of the crash. 
The driver of the vehicle that hit the couple's car fled, police said. No arrests have yet been made."
