Longview woman and newborn in good condition following car birth
The Longview News-Journal — A woman and her newborn were taken to local hospital Sunday evening after she successfully gave birth in her vehicle.
Longview Fire Department Captain Steve McCarthy said the department received a 911 call at 5:28 p.m., directing them to the area of U.S. 80 and Spur 63 in Longview.
McCarthy said EMS workers, Chris Wilson and Jody Followwell arrived to find that a 35-year-old woman had given birth in a car.
“The baby was out,” McCarthy said. “The only thing we did was cut the umbilical cord and wrap the baby in some blankets.”
