A pregnant Dallas high school teacher who was kept on life support after suffering an aneurysm so she could give birth has died following the delivery of her daughter.

Stacy Rojas suffered an aneurysm over Easter weekend. She was a little more than 29 weeks' pregnant when Zoe Sofia Rojas was delivered by Caesarean section on Friday.

Stacy Rojas, who was brain dead but kept alive at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas so her child could grow closer to full term, died on Sunday.

Rojas' husband, Marcus, said yesterday that Zoe was delivered more than two months early because his wife had developed pneumonia. Zoe weighed three pounds, three ounces.
