A Cop Stopped a Guy Speeding His Pregnant Wife to an Emergency C-Section
I would like to think that if there was a time to speed, it would be when you are driving a women who is in labor to the hospital. Right?
The Winnipeg Free Press reports that back on March 21st, Genevieve went into labor with her two weeks early in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba . Genevieve had complications when she gave birth to Anabela’s 3-year-old sister, and doctors warned her that she would need a C-section for the new baby.
So when Genevieve started going into labor, her husband Daniel put her in their Honda Civic and sped toward the hospital at 105 miles per hour.
That was when a Canadian Mountie pulled them over.
The couple assumed they’d get a police escort to the hospital. Instead, the officer wrote them a $1,000 TICKET for speeding, lectured them on safe driving, and kept them on the side of the road for 15 minutes.
That would have been bad enough, but the officer, who wasn’t named, then RADIOED AHEAD and told other officers to be on the lookout for the Civic.
Sure enough, another cop pulled them over, gave them a SECOND ticket, and made them wait ANOTHER 15 minutes for an ambulance to come get them.
David appeared in court last week, and his license was suspended for five months.
