Meet the Baby Delivered by Bedford Co. First Responders
Lynchburg, VA - The parents of the baby delivered by Bedford Co. first responders in a gas station parking lot early Wednesday morning say they are thankful for a safe delivery.
She's 6 lbs, 14.2 oz, 20 inches long, and faster than you can order food at a gas station.
"I just knew we weren't going to make it to the hospital, so I just told him he had to call 911 and meet us at Sheetz," said Robin Posey. "That was the closest place for them to meet us."
When new mom Robin Posey told folks she couldn't wait to meet her baby girl, she didn't mean it quite so literally. But there she was, at 2 a.m. Wednesday waiting for help to arrive in the parking lot of the New London Sheetz.
"She's coming, she's coming, she's coming, she's coming," said Posey on the 911 tape.
"The baby was coming. There was nothing else I could say," said Posey.
That pretty much says it all. New dad Earl Logwood, Jr. was on the phone with dispatch with his girlfriend Robin having massive contractions in the passenger seat.
"I was scared to death. I was," said Logwood. "I didn't really know what to say or how to answer any of the questions she was asking me."
"They were one after the other. So he was trying to talk to her, relay them to me," said Posey. "I was trying to answer them and do contractions. It was hard."
Then Deputy Allison Key arrived, with the promise more help was right behind her.
"Alright ma'am, got an ambulance on the way," said Key on the 911 tape.
"I believed her, but it seemed like it was taking forever," said Posey.
The ambulance arrived minutes later.
"As soon as I get in the ambulance, I have another contraction. He tells me to push. I pushed and she was here."
They named the baby Willow Rose Logwood. Mother and baby are at Virginia Baptist Hospital.
