LONDON, Ont. -- An online collection for a lost family that lost two children after a car crashed into a big-box store has reached nearly $60,000.
Donations to the fundraising page surged over the weekend, following a police announcement that newborn Rhiannon Bozek had died.
The infant was emergency-delivered after her mother and two daughters, ages six and three, were badly injured in the crash at the busy south-end Costco store on July 25.
The seven-day-old girl was delivered by emergency caesarean-section after Danah McKinnon-Bozek, eight months pregnant, along with four other people, was struck when a car inexplicably reversed into the entranceway of the store.
One daughter, sAddison Hall, 6, later died of her injuries.
Her sister, Miah Bozek, 3, remains in hospital in fair condition. Her mother, also in hospital, is listed in good condition.
Over the weekend, the baby's grandfather thanked supporters for their help and condolences.
More than 2,000 people, many of them strangers, packed a London park last week to honour the family.
"All the support that we've gotten from our friends and family and the city has been absolutely wonderful and has helped a lot when dealing with this," Jeff Bozek said. "I think it has touched many, many people."
Addison was kept on life-support after the crash while her family arranged to have her organs donated. Four people received organs from the little girl.
McKinnon-Bozek and her girls were leaving the Costco about noon when a car driven by a 65-year-old woman plowed through the glass doors in reverse.
The car slipped between two bollards, post-like barriers, 3.7 metres apart before entering the store and slamming into shoppers.
London police are still investigating, but say there's no evidence the driver's actions were intentional.
