It has been announced that one of the baby twin sisters Icelanders have been collecting money and praying for, has died in hospital.
As previously reported on Euromech, the babies’ mother tragically died in labour and left the twins fighting for their lives in hospital. One of them lost that battle on Saturday. It was initially reported that the mother had died of a lung embolism.
The baby will be buried, along with her mother, at Reykjavik’s Grafarvogskirkja church on Monday.
The twin sisters were born on Sunday 14th August and a Facebook message quickly went viral, calling on people to pray for the babies, their father and their two older siblings.
Friends and relatives opened a collection for the devastated family which everybody is welcome to contribute to.
