Topics: News

Susan Torres, the woman who gave birth yesterday while in a coma, has passed away:

A brain dead woman who was kept alive for three months so she could deliver the child she was carrying was removed from life support Wednesday and died, her family said.

Susan Torres' plight attracted worldwide sympathy after she suffered a stroke in May as she battled cancer. She gave birth to a daughter, Susan Anne Catherine Torres, on Tuesday by Caesarean section.

"This is obviously a bittersweet time for our family," Justin Torres, her brother-in-law, said in a statement.
