Mom Goes Into Labor, Dad Goes Into Ambulance

CHASKA, Minn. (WCCO) — When officers and paramedics responded to a medical call for a pregnant woman who was in labor, the last thing they expected was to need space in the ambulance for her husband.

Officers say they arrived to a residence in Chaska, Minn., where the woman and her husband were inside the bathroom of the home. Paramedics learned the woman’s water had just broke and she needed to be transferred to a hospital.

The soon-to-be mother was doing well and extremely calm, according to officers. She calmly changed into a different pair of clothes and got into the ambulance on her own.

Her husband, however, was not doing quite so well. He told paramedics he was becoming dizzy and light-headed and felt like he was going to faint, after seeing his wife’s water break.

The paramedics had to assist the man into the ambulance, where his wife was already waiting.

Both received medical attention in the ambulance and were transported to a hospital.

    The headline on the home page is VERY poorly worded but funny.

    Totally unrelated to my wife’s water breaking and obviously bad timing, I presented to the EMT’s as a possible heart attack; grey green from head to toe and sweating bullets. An apple juice, a nice walk around the ER and I was off to the OR for the delivery of our beautiful baby girl. It’s really interesting to see how others perceive a story. I’m glad people could get a nice laugh and my daughter will know this wonderful tale, but I also wonder why this is news.

    To all those who are wondering why this is news: Let’s me thankful reporters didn’t have any bad news to report today, so they had to find a nice story to report on. Jeez people, does the news always have to be bad?
