The snow storm that blasted the North East on Feb. 13 caused a tragic accident. A woman, 36, who was 8 months pregnant, died after a snow plow backed into her in a supermarket parking lot. Miraculously, the woman’s baby survived an emergency C-section at the hospital.
Min Lin, 36, was helping her husband pack up the trunk of their car with groceries when a privately owned snow plow accidentally backed into her. Min, who was 8 months pregnant when the incident occurred, was rushed to the hospital where she died from cardiac arrest and severe body trauma. Her baby was delivered by emergency C-section and is currently in critical condition.
Baby Survives C-Section After Snow Plow Hits Mom
The Nor’easter that hit the tri-state area left thousands of local businesses scrambling to shovel and plow each of their properties in order to open for business and accommodate customers.. This included the Fei Long Market in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn where 8-month-pregnant Min and her husband stopped to pick up groceries for their home.
Tragedy struck the couple when an unidentified 42-year-old male who worked for the Fei Long Market accidentally backed a Bobcat snow plow into Min while trying to clear the parking lot. The NYPD confirmed that Min immediately went into cardiac arrest after being struck by the plow. Unfortunately Min died after being rushed to Maimonides Medical Center, but her baby survived an emergency C-section.
Newborn In Critical Condition After Snow Plow Accident
Min’s emergency C-section delivered a 6lbs, 6 oz baby boy. Due to the nature of his birth, the baby is currently in critical condition inside the neonatal intensive care unit.
An NYPD spokesperson told the press that they arrived to find Min on the ground suffering from severe body trauma.
No criminal charges are pending against the driver.
