Colorado Massacre Victim Loses Baby, Ashley Moser suffers more heartbreak a week after the death of her daughter, 6, in the theater attack. Double Tragedy for Colorado Shooting Victim: Pregnant Mom Miscarries Days After Her 6-Year-Old Dies, A week after losing her 6-year-old daughter, Veronica, in the horrific Aurora movie massacre, Ashley Moser suffered a second tragedy.
The 25-year-old mom, who was critically wounded when a gunman opened fire at a Colorado Dark Knight Rises premiere, suffered a miscarriage as a result of her injuries this past weekend.
”Ashley Moser is recovering from an additional surgery she had this morning,” read a statement from the Aurora Medical Center, where she’s been receiving treatment. ”Tragically, the extreme trauma she sustained also caused a miscarriage.”
After being shot in the abdomen and neck, Moser was in critical condition. Her family waited to share the devastating news about her daughter Veronica, the youngest fatality in the shooting, until Moser’s condition improved last week. But by this weekend, it was confirmed Moser had also lost the fetus she’d been carrying for eight weeks as a result of her injuries.
This comes just days after Moser’s boyfriend, Jamison Toews, shared their baby’s ultrasound with CBS News in hopes of keeping Moser’s spirits up. At the time, her unborn child was believed to be alive, leading media outlets to proclaim the young fetus’s survival a miracle.
