We have heard babies being born at strange places and this is probably not the first gas station baby. But this story stands out because the cashier, Tammy Camp, became the hero after she rescued the baby after the mother thought that she was dead!
Cashier Tammy Camp was on the register when she recalls seeing a young woman acting in pain, looking for the outside restroom key. Minutes later she walked out, cradling the unexpected in her jacket. Camp says, “I noticed she had something in her arms, she was bleeding. We saw the baby and she said she just had a baby. Camp continues, “She thought the baby died, she laid it on the trunk and that’s when I took the baby.”
Camp immediately called 911. They told her what to do. “I tried to stimulate the baby, 911 told me to clear the airway,” say says, “It started making noise.”
Soon after, the cry of a newborn baby girl could be heard all around the gas station. Just three minutes later, Palm Beach Gardens Fire-Rescue arrived to tend to the baby and mother who was bleeding profusely. Both were taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center where they are said to be just fine.
Tammy, you are a true hero!
