With wife in labor, Ohio man pulls car into parking lot and delivers baby while talking to 911

WILLOWICK, Ohio - One baby boy was so eager to meet his mom and dad he just couldn’t wait to get to the hospital.

That’s what Willowick Fire Department officials said happened to a local family around 7:15 a.m. Tuesday when they pulled into the parking lot of DawnChem Inc.

The parents were driving to the hospital with the mother of the child in labor when they realized they wouldn’t make it in time.

So, the soon-to-be new father pulled in to the parking lot, called 911 and delivered his son in the car.

In the incredible 911 recording, the father is heard pleading with dispatchers to send help. Within seconds, he tells the dispatcher that the baby is out and breathing and everyone is OK.

Once EMS arrived, the baby and mother were checked out and then transported to the hospital.

The family is doing OK and enjoying their new baby boy.

Listen to the 911 call below. Warning, it contains some four-letter words.
