Minnesota Woman's Pregnancy Survives Falling Cow

  • Photo
WADENA, Minnesota (AP) A Minnesota woman who was pregnant when a tornado dropped a cow on her last summer has given birth to the baby.

Samantha Wittstruck of Wadena says she's thankful the baby survived last year's scare.

Wittstruck was one month pregnant when the tornado destroyed her home June 17. She was knocked out during the chaos and awoke to find the cow on top of her.

Her fetus may have benefited from the fact that the incident occurred early in the pregnancy.

Wittstruck says she paid tribute to her daughter's survival by naming her Skylar. She says the first syllable recalls the sky.

Skylar was born earlier this month, becoming Wadena's first newborn of 2011.

KSAX-TV says a church member marked the event by donating a quilt with cows on it.
