Doctors managed to save an unborn baby whose mother was killed when she was unintentionally run over by her husband.
The 36-week old infant is reportedly in stable condition at Houston’s Memorial Hermann Hospital, according to NBC affiliate KPRC.
Police told KPRC that the baby’s mother, who has not been named, was arguing with her husband about repairs to her car on Monday.
"He was going to go get it fixed later on once he got more money, but she wanted it fixed now so she was demanding more money," Houston Police Investigator Rolando Saenz said. "As he was leaving, she came to driver's door, held onto the door, the husband drives away, where she slips and falls, and the husband runs over her," he added. No charges have been filed.
Paramedics rushed the woman to Memorial Hermann Hospital Southwest where she died, but doctors successfully delivered the baby by C-section. The baby was then transported via Life Flight Helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital for observation.
