No matter how careful you are when driving, accident and danger lurks in every corner of the road. Sometimes, people are just in the wrong place at the wrong time and certain unfortunate circumstances can be a matter of life and death, just like what happened to this pregnant woman.
On one fateful day in January, a pregnant woman and her two young kids went out to have a good time together. However, the 21-year-old young mother named Valery Rodriguez was not aware that a simple mistake will cause a chain of unfortunate events to unravel that will endanger not only her life, but that of her kids as well.
While driving on the bustling highway, her black Nissan suddenly stopped moving in the middle of the road. Fortunately for Valery she was able to swerve at the last minute. Now faced with a crisis, the panicked mother dialed her father over the phone. However, she never got to finish their conversation when an unimaginable tragedy literally struck them.
Out of nowhere, a rushing pickup truck collided with Valery’s parked car which caused a massive damage to the black Nissan. Fortunately, many people who witnessed the horrific incident came to the pregnant woman’s aid. Among them was Martin Junglas, who is one of the first respondents:
“I saw her son… in the front seat hunched over. And I immediately ran over to him and picked him up and started breathing air into him. And on the third breath he started to breathe and started to moan.”
Even though the pregnant woman was already struggling, her initial thoughts were on her two sons. The person who responded to the car crash was moved after hearing the mother’s last pleas to save her sons.
It was a miracle that Valery’s oldest son, Max, survived the incident with only a few scratches. The three were immediately rushed to the nearby hospital, but Valery and her unborn son was declared dead.
This news is heartbreaking enough to the family, but they were even more devastated upon hearing that Valery’s younger son, Memo, did not make it as well.
