Pregnant Mom Forced to Watch Her 10-Year-Old Daughter Die in Car Accident

A pregnant mom in Brooklyn, New York, experienced the single most horrific AND joyful events that any mother could -- in one day. While crossing the street in the middle of the block with her 10-year-old daughter, the unidentified pregnant woman and her young girl were struck by a Honda Odyssey that was being driven by Bilal Ghumman, 22. The mom was reportedly pinned beneath the SUV, where she was forced to watch her seriously injured little girl struggle for her life.

At the same time that this horrific incident was taking place, the woman reportedly started to go into labor. Witnesses say they saw her clutching her belly in pain while she was obviously in shock and watching to see what would happen to her daughter.

Volunteer emergency responders reportedly pulled the mother out from under the minivan and rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she gave birth to a baby girl. Both she and her newborn are reportedly in stable condition and -- miraculously -- her birth went off without any complications.

But what should have been one of the happiest days of this mom's life was also one of the worst: her 10-year-old daughter was transported to a hospital with severe trauma, but doctors were unable to save her and she died.

Ghumman is reportedly employed as a parking valet and was on duty when he hit the mother and her daughter. He was arrested for an outstanding marijuana warrant and later charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle. Witnesses say he was in total shock that he hit the pair. He passed a breathalyzer test, according to police.

There are no words to describe how this woman must be feeling right now. She experienced the worst tragedy and the greatest miracle within a few hours of one another. Our hearts go out to her and her family as they struggle to make it through this extremely difficult time.
