Baby Dies as Mother Leaps From Singer-Rapper's Car
Nov. 11, 1993
DECATUR, Ga. (AP) _ A 10-month-old boy died when he and his mother fell from a runaway car that had just been parked by singer-rap artist Lisa ''Left Eye'' Lopes.
The baby, Jose Manvanet, and his mother, Tangie Foreman, were passengers in the car driven by Ms. Lopes, of the Atlanta-based group TLC, police said.
The singer had parked the car Tuesday and left it just before the accident.
Ms. Foreman was still in the front passenger seat when she turned to attend to her son in the rear. She accidentally knocked the car out of gear, and it began rolling down a hill, police said.
When Ms. Foreman leaped out of the car with her son, they fell, police said.
The baby died at Hughes Spalding Children's Hospital.
