A 23-year-old pregnant woman died in a car crash on I-94 on Tuesday morning, along with her baby, who was ripped from her body along the freeway.
Shardae Homesly of Detroit was not wearing a seat belt as she rode in the front seat of her SUV, driven by her fiancé, Michigan State Police Sgt. Linda Mys said.....
But the 7 1/2 -month-old fetus Homesly had been carrying fell from her ripped-open body, Mys said.
"Troopers at the scene realized the grotesque scene in front of them," Mys said, explaining the rush to save the baby.
Mother and son were taken to St. John Hospital, where Homesly worked as a lab technician. Both were pronounced dead there.
The AP's version of the story in the Chicago Tribune calls the child a "fetus."
