Iron River, WI (WVLT) -- Some volunteer EMT workers got a surprise when they delivered their first baby in the back of an ambulance.
They were trying to get the woman to the hospital, but the baby didn't want to wait that long. The cord was wrapped around the baby's neck and she was born premature. But the good news is, even though she only weighs a little over two pounds, she's expected to be just fine.
The twist here is, the parents didn't even know they were having a child until a day before-hand! The two suspected she was pregnant so they visited the doctor and found out it was true. What they didn't expect to hear was that she was already seven months along in her pregnancy.
Baby "Kara-Kay" will stay in the hospital for a couple of months since she is so premature and still has some weight to gain.
Her parents gave her a special middle name: "Surprise." The parents say they're very grateful to the ambulance crew and the medical center.
