Baby delivered after pregnant woman killed by snowplow

Posted:

BROOKLYN, N.Y. (AP) - A pregnant woman who was loading groceries into the trunk of her car with her husband was struck and killed by a mini-snowplow on Thursday morning, and her baby boy was successfully delivered by emergency cesarean section, authorities said.

Min Lin was hit by a utility vehicle with a snowplow 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.

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

The baby was in critical condition in the neonatal intensive care unit, Tynion said, and a family member was present with him but declined to talk to the media.

Lin, 36, was pronounced dead at the hospital, police said. No telephone number was listed at the address for Lin provided by authorities.

The driver of the vehicle, a 42-year-old man, remained at the scene after Lin was struck and hasn't been charged in what appears to have been an accident, police said.

The man was clearing the parking lot of snow. About 9.5 inches of snow had fallen on the city by Thursday morning.

A woman who answered the shopping center's phone declined to comment.
