Newborn son of N.Y. car crash victims dies


(JTA) — The baby boy born to a New York Satmar hasidic couple killed in a car crash on the way to the hospital has died.

The baby was delivered by Caesarean section at the hospital but died Monday morning.

His parents, Nachman and Raizi Glauber, 21-year-olds from Brooklyn, were killed late Saturday night while riding in a cab to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan.

Thousands of Satmar hasidim attended Sunday’s funeral for the Glauber parents in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.

The baby will be circumcised and named and buried alongside his parents, though a funeral will not be held, the New York Post reported.

The driver and passenger of the leased BMW car that hit the cab fled on foot. Police have the driver’s name and are searching for him, according to the Post.
