An NYC woman who fell down a flight of stairs during an attempted robbery at a Manhattan subway station earlier this month has died and police are still looking for the suspect. 

On Wednesday, 58-year-old Than Htwe died after undergoing brain surgery due to injuries she sustained during the fall. Police are still looking for 52-year-old David Robinson in connection to the attack, reported WNBC.

Htwe, accompanied by her 22-year-old son, was on her way to a doctor’s appointment on July 17, when the suspect attacked them at the Broadway and Canal Q line station in Chinatown, police said. He yanked the 22-year-old’s backpack, which caused him to tumble down the stairs. Before going down he reached for his mother. But, both of them fell down the stairs and lost consciousness. When the son woke up, he saw a pool of blood around Htwe.

She was rushed to a hospital where she underwent brain surgery, stated the son on a GoFundMe page. Following the surgery, the family was told that Htwe’s head trauma was so severe that she would never wake up, and eventually, all her organs would shut down. 

“All of us are heartbroken and shocked by how the events have turned out,” wrote the family on the post.

Carlos Lopez, a coffee stand worker who witnessed the mugging, said that he called the officers when he saw the son holding the woman’s hand and screaming for help, the New York Post reported. “There was a lot of blood coming out of her head,” he told the outlet.

After Htwe passed away Wednesday, the family took to the GoFundMe page to inform people about the loss. 

“I just want to tell everyone who’s reading this, to always cherish the moments you have with your mother,” wrote Htwe’s son Kyaw Zaw Hein and husband, Myint Shein. “Tell her “I love you” or giving her a hug and kiss because you never know what will happen. Thank you for all the support.”

The deceased woman's family members said they plan to donate her organs.

The attacker fled the station following the incident, police said. The NYPD Asian Hate Crime Task Force is investigating the case.
