Pregnant woman needs lots of help getting to Janesville hospital

by

JANESVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - A pregnant woman made it to a hospital in Janesville – but it took a team of first responders, three ambulance crews, and a snow plow to get her there.

The woman is from Clinton, east of Beloit. Authorities said she was driving to the hospital when she got stuck just after midnight on Highway 14.

A team of Clinton’s first responders could not get her on her way with their ambulance. She then walked over to a private ambulance, and it also got stuck. A third ambulance was then dispatched from the Janesville Fire Department, but it, too, got stuck.

A Rock County snow plow was summoned – and the third ambulance drove behind it to get the woman to St. Mary’s Hospital in Janesville.

A hospital spokeswoman said the woman was treated for nausea – but at last word, she was not ready to have her baby yet.
