A newlywed is grieving the loss of his wife, baby daughter and sister who all died within days of each other.

Domingos Fragas was only married five months when his 26-year-old wife Liz gave birth to their first child.

Tragedy followed when complications arose, causing his wife to die from blood loss.

Five days later, their daughter Juliet died.

Fragas, , from Massachusetts in the US, told local news channel WCVB: "I got to hold her (Juliet) and read to her every night. They were meant to be together. Liz wanted to hold her."

While at the funeral of his wife and daughter, he received a phone call to say his sister had died from cervical cancer.

Friends are raising money for Fragas to help cover the costs of the medical and funeral bills.

The GoFundMe page states: “He would never ask for money, and be more inclined to give you money rather than take any.

"But he's not asking, we are. He's already emotionally drowning with all this bad news and the last thing we would want for him is to drown in debt."
