Expectant Brooklyn couple killed in car crash, baby later dies
UPDATE: About 12 hours after we posted this, it was reported the young baby died, making this sad tale much sadder. The update below reflects the news as of last night.
Two lives end, one life begins: This story will make you very sad. Early Sunday morning, Nathan Glauber and Raizy Glauber, two expectant parents and newlyweds who lived in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg, were rushing to the doctor’s office when the cab they were in was broadsided by a car. The 21-year-old parents both died in the crash; however, the child survived, and the baby boy was born prematurely. The couple, part of the Satmar Hasidic sect of Judaism, were buried later Sunday in the ceremony shown above. “It’s very hard for me,” said Yitzchok Silberstein, Raizy Glauber’s father. “But I have to say that whatever God does is right, even if I do not understand, he has a plan.” A real heartbreak of a tale. (photo by Robert Stolarik/The New York Times)
