$10K reward offered in subway mugging that left NYC mom on brink of death

The New York mom who suffered serious head injuries when she plunged down a flight of stairs during an attempted mugging “won’t make it out of this,” her family said, as they plan to donate her organs.

Than Htwe, 58, has remained unconscious at a hospital after undergoing brain surgery in the aftermath of the horrific July 17 attack inside a Chinatown subway station.

Husband Myint Shein and son Kyaw Zaw Hein on Monday said that she would not recover from her injuries.

“We have decided to donate her organs for those who are in need,” the father and son wrote in an update on a since-closed GoFundMe page, that raised $48,140 for the family.

Police are still searching for the brute who left Htwe, an immigrant from Myanmar, on death’s door.

The Brooklyn resident and her 22-year-old son were on their way to her doctor’s office when they were attacked from behind while walking up the stairs in the Canal Street Q train station, cops have said.

The assailant grabbed the son’s bookbag, causing him to fall backward and reach for his mom, who plunged down the stairs with him and hit her head on the ground.

The trauma to the woman’s brain was so severe, that doctors told the family she would likely never wake up.

The NYPD has released surveillance photos of the suspect, seen exiting the subway platform, wearing a bandanna around his neck.

Community activists are offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the creep’s arrest.

Htwe’s family begged anyone with information to come forward.

“If you know anything about the guy who did this to her. Please let the police know! He needs to pay justice for what has been done!!” they wrote on the GoFundMe.

The husband and son said that “kind hearted and respectful” Htwe had moved to the US in the hopes of providing a better life for her child.

“All of us are heartbroken and shocked by how the events have turned out,” they said.
