Mom injured in Manhattan attempted subway robbery dies from injuries: NYPD


MANHATTAN – A mom died nearly two weeks after a tussle with a robber sent her falling down subway station stairs, police said Wednesday.

On Monday, GoFundMe organizers wrote that the mom would not make it.

“So we have decided to donate her organs for those who are in need,” they wrote.

The woman suffered severe head injuries in the attack and was in a coma for days, her family told PIX11.

Police identified the 58-year-old victim as Than Than Wtwe, though the GoFundMe noted her last name was Htwe.

Police identified David Robinson, 52, as a suspect in the July 17 Canal Street incident.
