“Everything has come crashing down on Manuel, Verónica had another child, plus the two babies. He is devastated, his heart is broken, now he has to face another life, and although he is sad he has to go out to work for his children, ”his sister Deanna Medina told EFE on Monday.

Bernal had three other children whom he also orphaned.
“It is a very sad situation for the whole family, it really is not easy when a situation like this happens in a family, mainly because of the babies, who are still in the hospital,” Medina said.
Due to the “tough” situation the father is going through, the family decided to open an account GoFundMe titled “Blessing Manuel: Single Dad of 3” in which they have barely raised just over $ 13,000 so far.
In the account Deanna Medina wrote that Verónica was a “beautiful, loving and compassionate person” and that the covid-19 forced her to induce labor to give them a “better chance of survival.”
“Unfortunately, we lost her after a tough fight,” she said in her request for help for Manuel, who, she said, “needs support to keep her babies.”
