Disabled Veteran Delivers Daughter on Sidewalk

A disabled veteran helped his fiancee deliver their daughter on the side of the road last Tuesday, Fox News reported.

Charlie White had gone into labor and was en route to the hospital with her partner, Marcus Nash, when she was overcome by an overwhelming pain.

The couple had just stepped out of their apartment in Atlanta and had to act fast.

Nash, who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) told Fox 5 Atlanta that he helped his fiancee lay down on the sidewalk.

"The baby was coming," he said.

Luckily the couple's neighbors heard the commotion and rushed to help Nash coach White through the delivery of their first child.

"I had my wife run upstairs and get blankets and towels to keep the baby warm and keep the mommy warm," Cardena Williamson told Fox 5 Atlanta.

Nash told Fox News he did not know how he would have coped without Williamson and her wife, Bri Anderson.

"I would have been waiting for the ambulance to come with a whole baby in my hand," he said.

The neighbors reunited on Thanksgiving to meet the newborn girl, Marlee Jane.

"To see her now, she's just a beautiful and gorgeous child, and it's just amazing to see how she got here," Williamson told Fox 5 Atlanta.

Earlier this year another woman gave birth on the Malden sidewalk when she was unable to make it to the hospital in time.

According to USA Today, Christine Harvey was experiencing severe cramps, not realizing they were labor pains, and called her boyfriend Doug Rogers, for a lift to the hospital.

However, while waiting for him on the sidewalk she gave birth to a baby girl.

"She went from here to there and the baby came," Rogers told WCVB-TV.

"She was holding something really small and there was a lot of blood," he continued. "I held her. I was like 'Huh?' But she's gorgeous."
