SHINNSTON, W.Va. (WBOY) — Fate works in funny ways as one family learned Monday, with the newest addition to their family being born in a 7-Eleven parking lot on July 11, or 7/11.
Mother of three Allie Sayers was scheduled for a C-section on July 13 but felt the baby coming early Monday morning. Allie’s fiance, Chase Bush, pulled over into a 7-Eleven parking lot as they were on their way to WVU Medicine United Hospital Center in Bridgeport and delivered the baby without having any form of medical training.
Allie’s sister-in-law, Ambra Bush, said Allie’s other two children were in the car with their parents when the baby was being delivered.
“She woke my brother-in-law up in the middle of the night and said she had to go to the hospital. So they were on their way, they came from Wallace and they made it to Shinnston, and Allie said ‘We have to pull over,’ and my brother pulled over and called 911, and the baby just… he wasn’t waiting,” Bush said.
The infant Waylon is doing well Bush said, and weighed in at 6 lbs 8 oz.
