The survivors of a Brooklyn deliveryman, who was mowed down by a teenager who was distracted by texting, plan to sue and refuse to take him off life support, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.
Tian Shen Lin, 53, sustained severe brain injury when his scooter was struck Sunday by a Camry driven by Nechama Rothberger, 19. She was texting on her cellphone when she struck Lin, who was making a delivey for his family’s Chinese restaurant.
The family has already hired an attorney to file suit against Rothberger, according to the News, and they are still praying that Lin will recover. He is still undergoing tests, but quite frankly, it would be a miracle for Lin to recover.
