NEW YORK (AP) — A baby delivered by emergency cesarean section after his mother was fatally struck by a mini-snowplow remains in critical condition in New York City.
A spokeswoman at Maimonides (my-MAHN'-uh-deez) Medical Center said the nearly full term, 6-pound, 6-ounce baby was still critical as of Friday evening.
The boy's mother was killed Thursday when she was struck by a small construction vehicle while loading groceries into her car in Brooklyn. Thirty-six-year-old Min Lin was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Police say the operator of the construction vehicle was ticketed Friday for not having it inspected and not having a headlamp or a license plate light. No criminal charges have been filed.
Roommate Song Qing Huang said Lin considered staying home but decided to go out because she had an obstetrician appointment.
