GoPro Dad Films Son's Birth At Hospital Doors
Footage shot by a dad-to-be shows his dramatic rush to the hospital with his wife in labour and her delivery of a baby boy outside the hospital entrance.
Kristin Dickerson of Rosenberg, Texas, went into labour at 42 weeks pregnant in the middle of the night on June 28.
Her husband, Troy Dickerson, was wearing a GoPro camera on his head throughout the entire ordeal as he sped 95mph (150kph) toward the hospital.
"I can't make it! I can't make it," Ms Dickerson says between screams in the 10-minute video.
"We need to stop!"
The couple eventually do make it to the hospital but before Ms Dickerson can sit on a wheelchair and go inside, the baby is born.
Ms Dickerson, who works as a childbirth educator, delivered the baby kerbside, with nurses rushing to assist and her husband comforting her and trying to calm her down.
"She had gotten out of the car and she had just frozen, like stood there. And me and the valet guy were like, 'Sit down! Sit down in the wheelchair!'" Mr Dickerson told local TV KPRC.
The baby boy was named Truett.
"I'm thrilled to have the footage," Ms Dickerson later told ABC News.
"I'm more hesitant to send it to people, because it's such an intimate moment for us, but as a birth educator, it's really cool to let people see that our bodies know what to do."
It is the third baby for the Texas couple and Mr Dickerson also filmed the births of the first two children, ABC said.
