The family of a 26-year-old pregnant Georgia woman who died along with her unborn child in a car crash on Saturday afternoon, are grasping to understand how this could happen.
Tiffany Robbins, of Acworth, who was seven months pregnant, was conscious and alert at the scene of the accident in Cherokee County, according to police, but later died from internal injuries at Kennestone Hospital.
Doctors performed an emergency cesarean section on Robbins, but neither she nor the baby survived.
Her two-year-old daughter, Malaya, was restrained in a car seat in the back and was not injured, according to WSBTV.com.
The incident happened after she turned into Woodstock Road from Victory Drive and pulled into the path of a truck travelling north on Woodstock Road.
The driver of the truck that collided with them was not seriously hurt.
Robbins’ distraught mother, Cindy del Carmen, said on her Facebook page that her ‘babies are gone’.
Her sister, and Robbins’ aunt, Judy Beale, said on her Facebook: ‘God please help me understand. Why and how could this happen to such a great person. I can't stop crying. The pain is unbearable.’
‘All we can do is hold onto the memories. Thank God that all of the memories are great.’
Beale told her sister:
‘You did a great job raising Tiffany Robbins and please be at peace knowing that. None of this seems fair. I am crushed too... The tears keep flowing. Hopefully the pain will ease up as each day passes and the memories will be strong. I love you, Sis! We will get through this together!’
Robbins, who was a stay-at-home mother, leaves behind her husband, Anthony Robbins, her daughter, Malaya, and her parents, Cindy and Antonio del Carmen.
