POTTSTOWN, Pennsylvania– An 18-year-old pregnant woman has died after shoveling snow outside of her home in Pottstown, Pennsylvania.  Several states were hit hard by the weekend blizzard.

According to NBC 10, Briahna Gerloff, who was 8-months pregnant, collapsed on Saturday. A family member said they told Briahna it wasn’t a good idea to be outside shoveling, but they said she wanted to do it anyway.

Family members told NBC 10 that Briahna suffered from several heart defects. A family member and a neighbor tried to give her CPR, but both Briahna and her unborn baby, Kayliana, died.

A friend set up a Go Fund Me page to help the family with funeral costs.
