Family members report that a baby born in Virginia last month to a comatose woman has died.
A statement says the girl -- who was born about two months premature -- died of heart failure following emergency stomach surgery. The family said the infant's condition had worsened rapidly over the weekend.
Cancer patient Susan Torres had been kept alive on life support for three months after suffering a stroke in May, until the baby could be delivered. Her husband had kept a vigil at her side.
