Unborn Child Survives After Mother Killed by Kentucky Special Forces Soldier

The unborn child of a Florida woman who died after an alleged vicious beating at the hands of her Army Special Forces husband has survived, in a medical development some are pointing to as a miracle amid a senseless tragedy.

Megan Santiago was taken off of life support at Vanderbilt University Hospital earlier this month, with her husband Sergeant First Class Joseph Santiago subsequently slapped with homicide charges. Ms. Santiago had sought assistance from friends to leave what she had described as an abusive marriage before a severe beating led to her hospitalization, revealing that her husband had threatened to kill her if she left him.

Ms. Santiago was eight months pregnant with a baby girl at the time the assault led to her hospitalization. The child was delivered via emergency caesarean section when physicians had determined that the mother’s prognosis was poor, and is currently breathing on her own in Vanderbilt’s Intensive Neonatal Care Unit.

The commanding officer of SFC Santiago’s unit described the soldiers of the community as shaken by the shocking and horrific allegations leveled against one of their own. “Meghan’s death is a tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. This tragic event has shaken our entire unit,” said 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) commander Col. Brent Lindeman of Fort Campbell, Kentucky. “Meghan’s death is a tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. This tragic event has shaken our entire unit. We take all allegations of domestic violence seriously, and we will provide every resource to ensure a thorough investigation.

The tragedy represents a profound betrayal of the Army values, with one consolation being the survival of Ms. Santiago’s third child. The Florida woman leaves behind a seven-year old son and four-year old daughter, with some of her relatives already beginning the work to adopt the children.
