Pregnant Mom and Unborn Baby Survive Brutal Stabbing Attack
Tanya Nguyen, 33, was parking outside her house in Sunland last Wednesday when she was approached by three men.
A pregnant mom and her unborn baby survived a brutal stabbing attack and now five alleged gang members in California have been arrested.
Tanya Nguyen, 33, was parking outside her house in Sunland last Wednesday when she said she was approached by three men – later identified by police as Christian Reyes, 20, Andrew Bran, 19, and Jesus Morales, 18 – and stabbed numerous times before they allegedly took the keys to her Kia sedan and sped off.
Another two suspects, 24-year-old Christina Luna and Monica Gomez, were allegedly waiting in a getaway car, authorities said.
But the suspects crashed shortly after and tried to run, according to officials.
Nguyen, who is 3 months pregnant, was stabbed 10 times and suffered a punctured lung. She and the baby miraculously survived, and they are both now recovering.
"As of today, the baby has a heartbeat," a GoFundMe for Nguyen read.
In a YouTube video posted over the weekend, Nguyen, who teaches first grade, thanked everyone for their support.
“I am completely overwhelmed by it and very grateful for all if your support and being there for me during this time. I am going to get through this,” the mom-to-be said.
A GoFundMe for Nguyen has raised more than $50,000 of its $100,000 goal.
All the suspects have been charged with premeditated attempted murder, among other charges. They have not yet entered pleas.
