Dad-to-Be Films the 95 MPH Race to the Hospital for the Birth of His Child

Jul 10, 2014

What do you do when your wife is pregnant and you need to get out of the house as soon as possible and rush to a hospital? Stick a GoPro camera in your car and record the whole thing, of course.

Troy Dickerson filmed his wife Kristin being driven to the hospital at speeds in excess of 95 miles per hour, recording himself trying to soothe her as she moans in pain. They pull up to the hospital’s car port, but Kristin can’t make it inside—she gives birth right out of the car. It’s amazing that everything went as smooth as it did, all things considered.

And when the baby is grown up, they will be able to watch their entire emergence into the world in HD! Good for them, I guess? At least they can time-lapse the footage.
