After three weeks of having their twin babies, the parents of Francisca and Nicholas are traumatized after a man runs about the family while they were walking on the sidewalks of South Beach on February 4.
Gonzalo Neris and Mariano Trech’s lifelong journey to finally have their twin babies happened on January 10, 2018, when Francisca and Nicholas were born via surrogate. “The experience was out of this world. We were in there with our surrogate, one of each holder her hands. It was a moment like we never imagined it would be like that. You know, everything was happy.” Trech said.
However, all that changed when a man drove his Mercedes Benz onto the sidewalk where the Neris, Trech and Trech’s mother were taking a walk.
The man behind the wheel is 29-year-old Matthew Miller. The authorities believed he was high on the scene and Miller admitted to having taken Percocet. He was arrested at the scene, charged with reckless driving and is being held on a $250,000 bond.
As for the family, all five were rushed to the hospital where Trech was treated for having broken ribs, broken clavicle and a deep wound in the elbow. The twins, Nicholas and Francisca have head injuries and were taken to the neonatal intensive care unit.
Nicholas is said to still be on life support, and Francisca can finally eat on her own.
“Just pray. Pray for us because we have a little tiger with us. He’s fighting a lot.” Neris pleaded.
