The young girl was delivered by emergency caesarean section after Kendra Villanueva was hit during a rainstorm in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The pair, and Kimberly's father, Ian Gordon, were rushed to hospital after being struck.

Kimberly's parents say she still can't digest food properly or sit up unaided.

Villanueva told KOAT: 'It's hard seeing that she can't eat like she's supposed to and can't have food yet, just through the [feeding] tube. But other than that I'm glad she lived through it all."

"She’s just kind of a play-it-by-ear baby," Gordon added.

"Everybody we’ve seen says it’s a miracle she’s alive."
