Randall woman gives birth in car on way to hospital

Email

A central Minnesota woman almost made it to the hospital before giving birth in her car.

Debbie Petersen told KSAX-TV she was up all night with pains she didn't think were contractions. But that all changed around 4 a.m. Wednesday when her water broke at her Randall home.

The nearest hospital was in Brainerd, about a 30-minute drive. Her husband Chris was driving her when Petersen says she could feel the baby's head emerge about a block from the hospital.
