After a snowplow killed a pregnant woman in the parking lot of a supermarket in Brooklyn during Thursday's storm, doctors were able to save the pregnant woman’s eight-month-old baby by performing an emergency cesarean section, reported CBS New York on Feb. 13, 2014.

The baby, whose 36-year-old mom was hit and killed when a snowplow was backing up, "is a 6-pound, 6-ounce baby boy." He is in critical condition in the neonatal intensive care unit at Maimonides Medical Center.

On Thursday, around 10:45 a.m., 36-year-old Min Lin and her husband were loading up groceries into the back of their car in the parking lot of Fei Long Market on Eighth Avenue near 63rd Street in Bay Ridge when pregnant Min Lin was struck by the snowplow.

After having been hit, Min Lin was rushed to Maimonides Medical Center where she died. Her husband was not injured.

Min Lin, her husband, and their almost six-year-old son lived just blocks away from the supermarket.

According to police, the 42-year-old snowplow driver who hit and killed the pregnant woman was driving in reverse. Residents living near the supermarket commented that the snowplow was privately owned. The driver, who had been operating the Bobcat plow for years, was known among locals for his reckless driving. As one resident said, “that guy just drives crazy."
