"Her fight inspired all of the nurses, doctors and staff members that knew her.
"Her purpose was served and she was called home on 4/20/2020.
"We thought we were having a baby, but had an angel instead."
The FDNY Hispanic society wrote in an Instagram post: "One of the worst experiences as a parent is to go through the loss of a child.
"It is with extreme sorrow to announce the passing of Jay-Natalie La Santa (5 months) daughter of our newest member to the Department and to the FDNY Hispanic Society family, Jerel and Lindsey La Santa".
