A New York firefighter's 4-month daughter has died of coronavirus, according to her family.
Jerel and Lindsey La Santa's daughter, Jay-Natalie, died Monday after spending a month in the hospital after developing a fever, ABC News and NBC News report.
Born in November, the same month her father was appointed to the FDNY, she would have been 5-months-old on April 27.
"Jay-Natalie had everybody wrapped around her finger," said her grandmother, Wanda La Santa, to NBC News. "Whatever Jay-Natalie wanted, she got."
According to NBC News, Jay-Natalie, who was born with a heart condition, was hospitalized last month after getting a fever. She initially tested negative for coronavirus. After a week in the hospital, however, she was retested and the result was positive.
Known as the "warrior princess," according to an Instagram post by the FDNY Hispanic Society, she had a "fighting spirit" through her battle with COVID-19. She appeared to be recovering hours before her death, per NBC News.
"My baby girl was so beautiful," Lindsey told ABC News.
New York City is the epicenter for coronavirus in the United States, with 145,855 confirmed cases and 16,388 deaths, per Johns Hopkins data. Eight active FDNY members have died from coronavirus so far.
"Please keep the La Santa family close in prayer and for peace during this difficult of times," wrote Jose A. Prosper, the FDNY Hispanic Society's president in the post Thursday.
A virtual service will be held for Jay-Natalie on May 2.
