Shushan, the wife of Vahe Karamyan who was from Sisian and was martyred while defending the homeland, died from a car accident on the way back to Sisian after giving birth to her third child. This is what Vahe’s uncle Samvel Karamyan told Tert.am.
“Vahe was from Sisian. He died on October 19, and Shushan gave birth to the child on October 15. Perhaps it was the experiences that Shushan had that the baby was born seven months old. Vahe was a contractual sergeant in the peacekeeping troops and had been on the frontline since day one of the war,” Vahe’s uncle said, adding that Shushan’s parents and brother had come to Yerevan to take her to her husband’s funeral, but the car accident took place on the road to Sisian.
“The parents and brother were saved, the brother’s head was injured, and he underwent a surgery. Only Shushan died. The newborn is at a hospital in Yerevan, and doctors say the baby is fine. My son was killed at a military post a year-and-a-half ago. Vahe and Shushan really wanted to name their child after my son, Hayk, but they didn’t manage. When Vahe found out that the baby was born, he said the baby’s name would be Hayk, but the newborn still doesn’t have a birth certificate. It’s up to the grandparents to decide,” Samvel Karamyan said.
Shushan and Vahe were buried next to each other on the same day.
