The family of the pregnant Broadway actress whose daughter was killed in Brooklyn by a seizure-prone driver broke their silence on Thursday.
“Thank you for your prayers over our families and holding us in our pain. We are extremely grateful for your kindness and generosity,” a family member tweeted from Tony-winning actress Ruthie Ann Miles’ account.
Miles’ four-year-old daughter Abigail Blumenstein and Joshua Lew, 1 – the son of her friend Lauren Lew – was killed during the collision in Park Slope on Monday.
The post continued: “Ruthie is now out of ICU and healing, by all accounts it is a miracle our second child is unharmed.”
“Please continue to pray for the Lew and the Blumenstein families as we process the unthinkable and lay our grief in the loving arms of Jesus. Joshua and Abigail are now resting in Heavenly peace and Joy,” the post read.
Joshua and Abigail were with their moms when they were killed at the intersection of Ninth Street and Fifth Avenue.
Lauren Lew was also hospitalized.
