A pregnant woman was killed by a snowplow, but her baby is delivered alive after the horrific NYC accident on Thursday. Min Lin, 36 was loading groceries into the trunk of her car when she was struck by a snow plow and killed, according to MSN News on Feb. 13.

It was a little before 11 a.m. when a mini-snowplow clearing a parking lot struck the mother-to-be ending her life. Lin was with her husband and the two of them were loading the car trunk with groceries.

She was rushed to the hospital where doctors did a C-section to save her baby, which was almost full term. The 6-pound 6-ounce baby boy is in neonatal intensive care unit at the hospital in serious condition today.

Police have not charged the 42-year-old driver of the snowplow and they are calling this an “accident” today. The man remained at the scene and cooperated with the police after the accident occurred.

The snowplow driver was cleaning the parking lot of the Fei Long Shopping Center in the Bay Ridge neighborhood of Brooklyn. A relative is with the baby in the neonatal intensive care unit at the hospital, but they declined to talk to the media today.
