Tony Award winning actress Ruthie Ann Miles' unborn daughter died due to injuries she sustained in a horrific Brooklyn accident that killed two other children, her mother's lawyer said.
The actress was about 30 weeks pregnant. She was one of those hit by a car driven by Staten Island's motorist Dorothy Bruns, who plowed through a park slope crosswalk on March 5.
Miles' four-year-old daughter Abigail Blumenstein and another child – Joshua Lew, 20 months – were killed that day.
Last Friday, Miles' unborn baby, Sophia Rosemary Wong Blumenstein, was another victim when she died of injury, said the family lawyer Ben Rubinowitz.
"As many of you know, Ruthie and Jonathan's daughter Abigail was tragically killed at the time of the crash, Ruthie was pregnant and seriously injured," Rubinowitz said in a statement.
"Last Friday, Ruthie and Jonathan lost their baby, Sophia Rosemary Wong Blumenstein," said Rubinowitz. "The pain suffered by Ruthie and Jonathan is almost impossible to fathom.
" As you can imagine, they are overwhelmed by the grief over their children's death. Ruthie and Jonathan are grateful for the support of their family and friends, but wish and request that their privacy be respected in this most difficult time. Ruthie and Jonathan continue to search for God's presence, mercy and peace.
