During the snowstorm Thursday, a snow plow in Brooklyn struck and killed a pregnant woman, police say. But her baby survived.
The plow — a privately owned Bobcat not affiliated with the city, — hit the 36-year-old woman in a supermarket parking lot, police told Pix 11.
While the mother died in the hospital of cardiac arrest, ABC Local reports, doctors delivered her baby via emergency c-section. The infant remains in stable but critical condition, police told NBC New York.
J. David Goodman, a crime reporter for the New York Times, tweeted:

The vehicle was reportedly backing up when the woman went down, and police are investigating any criminality, according to ABC.
There are conflicting reports about whether the incident occurred in Bay Bridge or Sunset Park. Both neighborhoods are in Brooklyn.
