Missouri doctors managed to deliver a baby whose mother was killed in a crash on her way to a hospital to give birth.
Sarah Iler and the baby’s father, Matt Rider, were headed Wednesday from Cape Girardeau, where they lived, to a hospital in Poplar Bluff, a city about 60 miles southwest where she grew up, when his SUV collided with a tractor trailer, the Southeast Missourian reported.
The impact ho hard that it pushed the SUV into the median, and Iler and Rider were ejected out, Cape Girardeau police Sgt. Adam Glueck said Monday.
Upon arriving at the scene, officers began performing emergency technique of CPR on Iler in an attempt to save her and the baby, but Iler was declared dead upon arrival at a Cape Girardeau hospital, he said.
Doctors operated immediately to deliver a baby girl.
The newborn, who weighed 4 pounds and 15 ounces and was full-term when she was born, was immediately put on a ventilator. She was able to come off of it on Friday.
Iler’s sister, Kasandra Iler, said Maddyson opened her eyes and grabbed a nurse’s finger. Still, doctors not sure if any brain damage has happened due to lack of oxygen due to mother’s death before birth.
A hospital spokeswoman would say only that the baby is in fair condition.
Matt Rider suffered extensive injuries but is recovering. He was flown to a St. Louis hospital with several broken bones. He has been upgraded from critical to fair condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.
So it is obvious that if all mighty god wants you can survive even if life is not expected so.
We wish the baby a healthy and normal life.
