Baby clings to life after mom dies in car accidentPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- Two days ago Cory Boston lost his niece to a suspected drunk driver.
“What I believe in is there's one person that can hold a grudge against somebody and that's not me,” said Boston.
Driving a white SUV was 25-year-old Karlisha Randolph. Her two boys were in the back seat. Karlisha was also nine months pregnant.
“She had just, just that day got her own apartment and my understanding is they were either taking some stuff or some stuff was there,” commented Boston.
Doctor's were able to save Randolph's baby boy, but because of the impact, Boston said he's in pretty bad shape.
“The baby went for 20 minutes without oxygen. So what they're trying to do is let the medical technology do a lot of the work for the baby and let its body heal itself so he can get strong enough where he can start on his own," Boston explained.
Karlisha's other two boys, a toddler and a seven year old, are currently staying with Boston and his wife. The seven year old has opened up about what he went through.
“He's been very, very brave is the word I would use. I haven't seen him cry, I haven't seen him break down, he's been somber, but solid," said Boston
Boston said his family is pretty close and has come together to support one another and the kids now left without their mom.
If you'd like to help with funeral expenses an account has been set up at Desert Schools Credit Union under Karlisha's name.
