NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Britney Edgecombe, a young Abaco mother who was severely injured in a car accident last month, died this morning.

Edgecombe passed away at around 7 am, according to her sister, Telia JnBaptiste.

JnBaptiste announced her sister’s death on Facebook and thanked supporters.

Edgecombe’s family had been fundraising to have her airlifted to Florida for further medical care.

“My family and I, we just wanted to thank you guys so much for everything, from the beginning, getting her help,” she said.

“…I just want to continue to ask you guys to keep us in prayer, keep (her son) Zai in prayer, our parents in prayer.

“We’re still processing everything. We just ask you for prayers and we just want to thank you guys for everything.”

Edgecombe was involved in a horrific car accident on her way to work on September 9.

She was reportedly trapped in the car for over an hour and had to be removed after paramedics used the jaws of life.

She was airlifted from Abaco to New Providence and admitted to Doctor’s Hospital.

Her family said MRI scans and x-rays revealed severe injuries all over her body, the most critical of which was spinal and brain injuries.
