NY pregnant woman killed by plow, baby delivered

NEW YORK  — A pregnant woman who was loading groceries into the trunk of her car with her husband was struck and killed by a mini-snowplow in New York City on Thursday morning, and her baby boy was successfully delivered by emergency cesarean section, authorities said.


Min Lin, 36, was hit at about 10:45 a.m. by a utility vehicle with a snow plow 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.

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

The baby was in critical condition in the neonatal intensive care unit, Tynion said, and a family member was present with him but has declined to talk to the media. The woman 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, police said. About 9.5 inches had fallen on the city by Thursday morning.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
