A pregnant mother who was killed after accidentally being run over by her son had her unborn baby saved by hero medics.

Shannon MacLeod, 35, was eight months pregnant and had been enjoying a family day out at the beach.

As the family were leaving the beach, Shannon was stood behind the car loading bags into the boot when it rolled backwards and crushed her – with her son said to have accidentally put the minivan into gear.

Shannon, a mum-of-six, was pinned to the floor.

Emergency services rushed to the scene in Steilacoom, Washington, where they found Shannon crushed under the minivan with serious injuries.

A team of firefighters lifted the vehicle from her and she was rushed to hospital, but died on en route.
Despite this, hero medics were able to perform an emergency C-section and save Shannon’s baby, who has now been named Joseph.

Her son Nathan has started a Go Fund Me page to help with the funeral costs.

He wrote: “She gave birth to me at the young age of 15. All she cared about was her kids.

“Did everything to take care of them no matter what.

“Her baby is alive and in the hospital we need all the help and support we can get. Please help if you can. I don’t ask for a lot but please.”

The family has raised around £8,700 of its £11,500 target so far.

Speaking with Komo News , he said: “We’re just trying to keep us all together that’s all.

“I know my mom would want that the most because family is so important to her. Family was the number one thing.

“No matter what, it was always family first.”
