Here’s another reason to hate this terrible winter – an eight-month-pregnant woman was struck and hit by a grocery store snow plow while loading groceries into her car and killed. I can’t even imagine how horrible this whole thing is. We all know the snow has been bad this year, my own kids have had school cancelled again this morning, and this mom was just doing what so many of us moms have been doing, buying groceries probably to stock up due to the weather. The worst part about it? Customers have complained about the snow plow driver’s “erratic driving habits.”
Min Lin went into cardiac arrest after being backed into by the snowplow. Her husband was with her at the time. Lin died at the hospital, and her baby boy was delivered by emergency C-section. The baby is said to be in critical condition in a neonatal intensive care unit. From the NY Post:
“The baby is not looking good and [his father] is very worried,” said Song Qing Hwang, 34, a female roommate of the couple, who spoke on the phone to Lin’s grieving husband.
“I’m not sure what to feel. I feel very sad for the loss of my friend.”
And from customers familiar with the bobcat driver’s plowing habits:
“He almost hit me and my wife yesterday as we were going across the street. The guy was a speed demon,” said Marvin Lopez, 43, a janitor who lives across from the parking lot.
“I thought, that man is going to kill somebody someday. And look what happens.”
Another two to four inches of snow are expected in the area today. I will be thinking of this poor little baby and his grieving father.
