Doctors Deliver Baby After Mother Killed in Crash on Way to Hospital

From Time:

The collision pushed the SUV into the median, and Iler and Rider were ejected, Cape Girardeau police Sgt. Adam Glueck said Monday. Upon arriving at the scene, officers began performing 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, though, performed an emergency cesarean section and delivered her daughter, Maddyson.

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.
