Newborn passes away after taken off life support
Lauren Accurso died unexpectedly while giving birth to baby boy
A newborn whose mother died during childbirth was taken off life support and passed away, the family's pastor said Friday.
Lauren Accurso, a mother of four, died while giving birth to Matthew Jr. It's unclear what led to her death, but it was described as an unpreventable and rare medical condition.
Her baby boy had been in the neonatal intensive care unit since then, but after several serious complications, family pastor Matt McCloghry said that Matthew Jr. "stepped into eternity to meet Jesus and his momma" Friday evening.
