The baby who was delivered after his mother died in a deadly Saturday road accident has died, Israel Hayom reported.

The baby was delivered at Tel Hashomer Hospital in a clinically dead state, but hospital staff succeeded in resuscitating him, after which they anesthetized him and placed him on a respirator.

His mother, Irena Dubinsky, and twelve-year-old sister Anat Rosenberg, were killed in the crash, and his father and 7-year-old sister were injured. When the victims arrived at the hospital, medical staff found Dubinsky clinically dead and delivered her baby via emergency c-section, only to discover that he, too, was clinically dead.

The accident, which involved the family's car and a commercial vehicle, occurred on Route 6 near Ben Shemen Interchange in central Israel.

Investigations of the crash show that the private vehicle carrying Rosenberg and Dubinsky hit the guardrail near Ben Shemen Interchange. The vehicle bounced back into the street as a result of the collision, and spun around. A commercial vehicle which was also traveling northwards hit the right side of the family's car head-on. It is not yet clear why the vehicle hit the guardrail.
