Pregnant woman, son die after car swept away in heavy rains
A series of storms socked the Northeast with heavy rains and strong winds, causing the deaths of a 9-year-old boy and his pregnant mother whose car was swept away by floodwaters while she was on the phone with emergency officials. Thursday's storms quickly intensified, causing flash flooding in several states and spawning a tornado in a southern New Jersey town. A firefighter who was put in contact with the woman, who was identified as 31-year-old Pamela Snyder, was able to stay on the phone with her for several minutes before they lost contact, Dzurek said.
