Delivering your baby on the way to the hospital is pretty much many woman’s worst nightmare. But what this dad did next was inspiring…
A hero dad has saved his newborn daughter’s life by using first aid he learned on the hit medical drama ER.
His partner, Sarah Pearson (pictured, above) went into labour at home in Woodborough in the UK. They got in the car and started driving to Notthingham City Hospital when Andrew says he heard a giant ‘whoosh’ and looked down to see his newborn baby girl in the footwell on the car mat.
The 44-year-old dad told the Nottingham Post, “We’d only got a couple of minutes down the road when Sarah started screaming like I’ve never heard anyone scream before. All of a sudden there was this huge ‘woosh’ – as if someone had chucked a bowl of water into the car. Then I looked across and the baby was in the footwell. She was blue. I stopped the car and we both just screamed at each other. I had no idea what to do.”
Their daughter wasn’t breathing and needed urgent medical attention.
