There are about 490,000 babies born into the world every single day, and every day anywhere from 250 to 300,000 people die. That’s the cycle of life.

It’s not often, however, that both parents die, the same day their child is born. That’s the tragic story of Brooklyn couple, Nathan and Raizy Glauber. Both 21-years old, the newly married Jewish Orthodox couple was rushing to a local hospital to deliver their first child, when their car was hit by a speeding BMW, killing them both.

Miraculously, doctors were able to perform an emergency C-section on Raizy, giving her baby boy the chance at life that she never got to finish. The baby’s in ICU at Bellevue Hospital, and is expected to be okay.

Cops say the driver of the BMW and a passenger jumped out of the car and ran off. This is the kind of thing they can’t run from forever.
