Two parents have died and their baby boy is “fighting for his life” after they were pulled from a burning home Wednesday morning, a family member said.
Alexia Moreno, 25, and her partner Freddie Lawson, 45, died in a house fire at their home at 18 Third St. in Waterbury.
Their son, 17-month-old Nasir, is in critical condition at Yale New Haven Hospital, where he was airlifted following the fire Wednesday, according to family members.
“He is fighting probably the biggest fight of his life,” said Rachele Dean, Moreno’s cousin. “Please pray to whomever you believe in that Nasir can recover.”
Dean remembered Moreno as “a beautiful person and a wonderful woman.”
“She was a beautiful person inside and out; she was an amazing mother and person in general. Her life and all her interests revolved around Nasir, she wanted everything perfect for him,” Dean said.
