Fundraiser for children after mother dies giving birth

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) - A fundraising drive is being held for a New Jersey family after a woman died while giving birth to her second child.

Family friends say that Lauren Weller, of Butler, died from complications from her Caesarean (C-section) surgery.

The baby, named Chloe, survived.

Josh Dempe is now left to raise a baby and his 4-year-old daughter Lexxi, while struggling with the emotional loss of his partner.

Friends have set up a gofundme campaign to raise money for the family's future. More than $25,000 had been raised by Wednesday morning.

Weller had worked at a Butler salon called b.Euphoria.  Workers there are accepting baby items for the family and are also selling pink hair extensions for $10 to raise money for the family.

    Man with many piercings denied entry to Dubai

    A heavily tattooed German man whose face is embellished with horn implants and more than 100 piercings said Sunday he was refused entry to Dubai without reason, forcing him to skip a planned appearance at a nightclub.  His look may have been a step too far for the Gulf's most liberal city, where a carefully cultivated reputation for tolerance and cutting-edge cosmopolitanism occasionally clashes with the region's conservative Islamic values.
