I'm glad the babies are alive. It must take a lot of bravery and strength
to deliver a baby when you've never delivered a baby before, especially in
Hasn't this happened before? I think someone should build an
InstaCare/Birthing Center near that Tree of Life. It's already an aptly
named spot . . .
Did I read this right...it took 90 minutes to get life flight to the scene? You
could drive to the hospital in Tooele faster than that.
@too smartThe way I read it, they arrived at the hospital at 10:30 am. Or
at the very least took off from the Tree of Life (after perhaps dealing with the
birth which was actually happening) at 10:30 am. Not that they arrived on the

Most women have to push for quite a while before the actually delivery. So, if
they pulled over at 9AM, it was probably the better part of an hour before
before both babies were born. Getting the first baby breathing and delivering
the second were important priorities to be tackled before transporting. Also, if
the dad was busy delivering babies and didn't call for emergency assistance
right away, that would slow things down considerably. He may have been lucky the
officers discovered the predicament at all. So I don't think the timing
sounds way off. The good news is that everybody was apparently safe and sound.
Babies were delivered for thousands of years without hospitals,
doctors, or special intervention. While it would be scary and inconvenient, a
safe delivery was still more likely than not.Congratulations to dad and
policemen on quick thinking in a crisis. Congratulations to mom for a hard
