Mother of miracle baby speaks out about tragic accident

- The mother of a miracle baby and two other boys, who survived a deadly accident on I-95 is speaking out about God and the challenges of getting the care they need.
 
"We're doing okay," Shacya Hamilton said. "We're still struggling with the loss." Hamilton is grateful that her 3 young sons, Ke'shaun, Daeron and Khirye survived a tragic accident on I-95 last month.

Shacya says her brother took the boys on a family outing, with 7 other people, when their SUV crashed. Investigators say a tire blew causing the vehicle to roll over numerous times and with some of the passengers inside ejected.

According to Shacya, her brother is engaged to the driver of the car, Latorya Brown, who she calls her sister-in-law.

4 of Brown's young daughters lost their lives. Shacya believes it's a miracle that all her sons, including 3-year-old Ke'shaun Walker lived. "The car flipped like 25 to 30 times. He was falling out of the car, over a 30 ft wall, he missed the house and 6 poles and landed in some dirt. They couldn't find him for 3 minutes until he started crying so I figured he was like knocked out."

Shacya believes someone was watching over her precious toddler when the accident occurred. "He told me when he was in the air, somebody was holding his hand. He told me it was an angel." Ke'shaun has a tiny cast on his leg, which is broken and has a rod in it.

He also suffered head injuries, but his spirit remains strong as he sits on his mom's lap. "He's doing better, he still has to have surgery. These scars here and on his lips and his buttocks area has been scratched really bad."

6-year-old Daeron Hamilton tried telling us what happened after the beach outing, "We went to the beach and the car flipped over," he said. 

Shacya says, "They all was in the back seat. Dayron had minor injuries. His head, legs and body injuries."

7-year-old Khirye suffered serious injuries. "He has to have plastic surgery on his head. They don't know if his hair is going to grow in the spot on his head, so he was hospitalized in ICU for a week."

Khirye explains how he's had a hard time sleeping due to nightmares, both he and Daeron saw the girls lose their lives. "I have dreams. " Khirye says.

Shacya says they talk about it everyday and that they're still traumatized about it. We asked Shacya how  Brown is doing after suffering the loss of her 4 girls. "It's hard, I try to keep it together for her. But she's strong. She's trying to hold it together. "

Shacya says it's been challenging, trying to keep up with the medical bills. "I have the GoFundMe that I set up for my kids medical expenses. We still struggling with paying the medical bills."

Shacya realizes what's really important. "It's a blessing because I could have lost them like I lost my nieces. I thank God for that."

And Shacya says she has to take the boys to the doctor each week.  Link to Shacya Kids GoFundMe page.
