Pregnant woman dies giving birth during peak of COVID-19

A family is heartbroken after a 26-year-old woman died during childbirth at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic in New York City.

Bruce McIntyre is a new father who should be celebrating the birth of his son.

Instead, McIntyre is drowning in sorrow after the mother of his son, 26-year-old Amber Isaac, died during childbirth.

Her family says Isaac’s platelet levels had been falling since February, but she couldn’t see a doctor in person even though she was seven-months-pregnant because of the pandemic.
