Fundraiser for children after mother dies giving birth

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) - A fundraising drive is being held for a New Jersey family after a woman died while giving birth to her second child.

Family friends say that Lauren Weller, of Butler, died from complications from her Caesarean (C-section) surgery.

The baby, named Chloe, survived.

Josh Dempe is now left to raise a baby and his 4-year-old daughter Lexxi, while struggling with the emotional loss of his partner.

Friends have set up a gofundme campaign to raise money for the family's future. More than $25,000 had been raised by Wednesday morning.

Weller had worked at a Butler salon called b.Euphoria.  Workers there are accepting baby items for the family and are also selling pink hair extensions for $10 to raise money for the family.

    It was a day in the park for about 40 prisoners - handcuffed to each other, a fence and even a children's slide.  Authorities have been holding some crime suspects in a public park in western Bogota's La Granja neighborhood because they say there is no more room at a local detention center.
