Doctors in New Hampshire were able to save the life of a baby moments after his mother was struck and killed by her boyfriend’s pickup truck.
The couple was arguing and then the expectant mom leaped from the truck and was struck by a rear tire, according to police and news reports.
She was taken to Parkland Medical Center, where doctors delivered the “nearly full-term” baby and pronounced her dead.
The couple had been living at a campground in Londonderry for the past several days, police said. The newspaper reported the couple have three other children together.
The baby is in critical condition at Massachusetts General Hospital, where she was flown after delivery.
This dad has some big shoes to fill now. Let’s hope that this baby survives his less than normal entrance and that the family is able to recover from such a devastating loss.
