A routine appointment quickly turned into a tragedy for one LDS family when Chervonne Magaoa, who was pregnant with triplets, had to give birth to her babies earlier than expected.
Chervonne Magaoa was looking forward to bringing her triplets home.
Their room was ready with new clothes, blankets and even dressers labeled with each of her new sons' names.
But no one would have thought the boys would be coming home without their mother. The New Zealand-born 34-year-old died shortly after giving birth.
Magaoa, who was born in Hastings but raised in Hawaii, arrived at the Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women and Children last Thursday for her weekly appointment, when things suddenly went wrong.
