Soldier Delivers Daughter In Family SUV

Soldier Delivers Daughter In Family SUV

Mother, Baby Doing Well

POSTED: 8:34 am EST March 4, 2011
A 30-year-old Fort Bragg soldier set to leave for training in Montana next week worried he might miss the birth of his daughter. Instead he helped deliver the baby in the family's sports utility vehicle. The Fayetteville Observer reports Sgt. 1st Class Walter Veazey oversaw the delivery of the child they named Alicia at 12:15 a.m. Wednesday in the parked SUV. Veazey said his wife, Sarah, went into labor early and so fast that their rush to the hospital got no farther than a gate at the fort, where the 7-pound, 5-ounce girl was born with her three siblings, ages 3 to 11, watching. Veazey called paramedics, but said it was "pretty much all over" by the time they arrived. Mother and baby are doing well.
