Tragedy showcases American generosity

As if being a new dad isn’t difficult enough, imagine being a young father of QUADRUPLETS and having to raise them alone.

Even in a day of advanced medical technology, sometimes the unthinkable still happens, and a mother dies giving birth.

A new father whose wife died just hours after giving birth to their quadruplets has received an outpouring of support from strangers all over the world. He’s raised more than $330K from over 9,000 strangers.

Yahoo News: On January 16, Carlos and Erica Morales welcomed three girls and one boy — Carlos Jr., Tracey, Paisley and Erica. But after delivering four healthy babies via C-section, Erica, 36, went into hypovolemic shock, a condition that involves severe blood loss, and died a few hours after her children were born. Today, Carlos is raising the kids by himself in Phoenix, Ariz., though not without help from his mother-in-law, friends, and now, more than 9,000 strangers.
