An out-of-control driver killed two children and injured their mothers Monday while they were crossing the street at a busy Brooklyn intersection.
The New York Post reported that the scene was chaotic. The mother of the 1-year-old worked frantically to revive her son after the stroller was dragged about 100 feet. A 4-year-old child was fatally struck and her pregnant mother suffered serious injuries.
“The mom was sitting there next to him screaming,” Andrew Macaluso, a fourth-year medical student, told The Post while describing Lauren Lew, the mother of the 1-year-old. “She was just kind of, ‘Oh, God, this can’t be happening. Tell me this isn’t happening. What’s going on?’ ” Macaluso said of Lew.
