    The doctors should and could have saved the baby, no matter how many months the bay was.

      That’s not exactly right. For a reasonable chance of survival, the fetus should be at least 25 weeks developed with additional weeks improving the chance of survival greatly. Although there have been cases where there has been survival at 22-24 weeks, they are very high risk. Prior to 22 weeks, it’s a miracle of the baby survives. This is a tragic story. Condolences to all those affected.

      You don’t even know any details and you say that, wow what an ignorant idiot, maybe the baby was DEAD also. shut up fool.

      So I take it you were present at the scene and know the intimate details regarding the conditions of this woman and her unborn child and what the medical team did and did not do?

      You have no idea what you’re talking about.

    we have no idea who it was – they never followed up or the family hasnt been notified yet.

    Does it matter what the f**k she was you moron! Have some respect!

    I am a tree lover, I never like to see them cut down…but It seems there are so many car accidents where people end up hitting the trees & die because the trees are so close to the roadside. Sad. Rest in peace. There is a street in Riverside where 20-30 big palm trees line the CENTER of the road w/ no guardrail. It is so dangerous.

    I stopped to render aid , I held her hand as she took her last breath of air . The car wrapped around her body we could not get her out to do CPR . After waiting 10 minutes Glendale fire showed up then LA city fire then Burbank . None to the jaws if life , they used a sawzall to get the door open. . I did not know until she was pregnant until she was put on a back board . By that time it was over 30 minutes from the time of the accident . I wish I could have done more . I don’t know if any of you know the feeling of someone dying in your arms . That will be with me forever .

      This was my friend.
      Was she aware of what had happened? Was she calm? Did she struggle? I am filled with sadness for her family and our loss.
      Thank you for holding her hand.

      Hey Lance, thank you for being there with her. She was a friend, and we are wondering the same questions: did she have any final words?, was she calm, peaceful? was she in great pain? I know you were there with her for a reason, please know how grateful all of her friends and family are to you, for your presence with her. If you like to email me you can: chantillyhensley@hotmail.com
      Thank you and God bless you!

      Lance your helpfulness was a blessing, you being there helps many of us know she went in peace. She was a wonderful person and I am deeply sadden that her life and the babys had to end this way. She was a a good person and great teacher. She was my son’s teacher at Venice Animo Charter High School and I always loved her vibrant, tough love attitude. She believed in her students and gave them encouragement. She will be missed.
