She died of

cardiac arrest "IN THE LOBBY".......lack of oxygen to the babies was probably the cause of their deaths as tragic as that was, and it would seem to me that trying to extract them quickly without an operating room nearby and a PICU unit set up to handle them that small would have taken time. I would have to see the court transcript to know if that was the original argument that then got expanded to include state law.....but I have to also make an assumption that they were more concerned with the mother's health emergency and tried to save/revive her and had a terrible choice to make 'on the spot', which normally takes precedence over everything else.
