News agencies are reporting that baby Riley Andrew Williams died a few hours after delivery. “The father was able to hold the baby before he died.”
A tragic car accident in Gastonia, South Carolina, ended with a small bit of happy news today — 7 pounds and 5 ounces of happiness, to be precise.
WSOCTV reports that 24-year-old Rebecca Hodge Williams (pictured here) was driving her car when she lost control of the vehicle and crashed into another oncoming car. She was due in two weeks, on January 19.
When a trooper arrived on the scene he saw that Williams didn’t have a pulse, and immediately began performing CPR in hopes of saving the unborn baby. Another officer arrived, as did a nurse who was passing the scene, and the group worked together until Emergency Medical Services arrived.
