MOTHER GIVES BIRTH EN ROUTE TO REID HEALTH

(Richmond, IN)--One of Wayne County’s newest residents entered the world in dramatic fashion Sunday.  An expectant mother woke up in labor at just past midnight in western Wayne County.  She and her fiancé headed to Reid Health.  When they turned north on Salibury Road, they realized they were not going to make it to the hospital.  With a Wayne County dispatcher coaching the couple, the baby was born on Salibury Road somewhere near Industries Road.  The three then continued to Reid with police blocking Chester Boulevard.  Both mother and baby appeared to be okay on arrival at Reid.
