A community spokesman says a baby delivered after his parents, Nachman and Raizy Glauber, were killed in a Brooklyn hit-and-run accident early Sunday has died, the Journal News reports.
A family spokesman, Isaac Abraham, said the child died around 5:30 a.m. Monday, the Journal News said, after the boy had been listed in serious condition hours after the accident.
The father, Nachman Glauber, was raised in Monsey, Rockland County, and was part of a family that founded a line of clothing for Orthodox Jews and was studying at a rabbinical college nearby, his family told the paper.
“This is a devastating tragedy to all of us,” said Ramapo Councilman Daniel Friedman, speaking by phone Sunday morning. “This is a place where their family had roots for a long time.”
The young Hasidic couple were mourned Sunday afternoon by more than 1,000 people in Monsey. Here’s video of the service.
