A pregnant woman who died after an emergency C-section was suffering from the flu.
38-year-old Margaret Jefferson was 32 weeks pregnant when she was found in her home on W. 91st Pl. in Hickory Hills early Thursday morning.
Doctors at Palos Community Hospital delivered her baby; but Jefferson was pronounced dead several hours later; her baby girl died a few hours after her mother.
An autopsy today may determine exactly how the mother and baby died; police say their deaths are not considered suspicious.
