'I was sitting in the ER and my heart was just pouring out to them when I heard about it.
Officials say 61-year-old Audie Trinidad and his four daughters were killed in the horrific wreck Friday afternoon.
Nelson's daughter, Kim Trinidad, had lived with Audie Trinidad's family for four years, since graduating from nursing school in the Philippines.
"They're a God-fearing family". Trinidad's brother, Daniel, told the New York Post outside the family's three-level house on Saturday. The family was returning home after a vacation. Authorities have said the children were not wearing seat belts. "They touched our lives in many ways". "So far, we're holding up, you know, we're holding up as best as we can". I don't know. She can't take it.
People close to the family had set up a GoFundMe account that had raised more than $96,000 in less than 24 hours. My brother texted me a picture of the blue crabs they ate on 4th of July. "He goes to church every Sunday, loved by his neighbors", he said. Their bodies in the morgue are unrecognizable'.
