Pregnant Woman Killed by Snowplow in NYC

Baby was successfully delivered


A pregnant woman who was loading groceries into the trunk of her car with her husband was struck and killed by a mini-snowplow in New York City on Thursday morning, and her baby boy was successfully delivered by emergency cesarean section, authorities said.

Min Lin, 36, was hit at about 10:45 a.m. by a utility vehicle with a snow plow attached to it as it backed up in the rear parking lot of the Fei Long Shopping Center in Brooklyn's Bay Ridge neighborhood, police said.

The woman was rushed by paramedics to nearby Maimonides Medical Center where her nearly full term, 6-pound, 6-ounce baby was delivered, said hospital spokeswoman Eileen Tynion.
