This crazy story comes out of a 2005 episode of Untold Stories of the ER. We’ve already featured one crazy incident from Untold Stories of the ER before, but these are true stories from the ER reenacted. Buckle up for this one because it’s both amazing and terrifying!
It was just a surprisingly busy day for Dr. Mauricio Heilbron, Jr. in his hospital in San Pedro, California. A gunshot victim in critical condition and a man whose entrails were outside of his body! Talk about a rough day! Dr. Heilbron recalls telling himself that he didn’t think the day could possibly get any more crazy. Then all of a sudden, Dr. Heilbron heard a woman screaming in pure pain. As he was turning around an unnamed ER physician rushed past him.
The ER physician then landed on his knees right at the foot of the gurney holding the pregnant woman. The baby actually flew out! The baby literally flew out and somehow, amazingly, the ER doctor knew exactly what was going to happen and knew he needed to be there to catch the baby that was coming out fast. Talk about the perfect intuition, absolutely incredible!
The physician was wearing a nice buttoned shirt, pressed pants and oxford shoes, all of which were sadly ruined. “Here’s this immaculately-dressed emergency room physician covered in afterbirth, blood, fluid, feces, urine. God knows what else.” said Dr. Heilbron recalling the event. Oh well, at least the baby was saved! Of course all the nurses and doctors around him were absolutely stunned and amazed that he knew what was about to happen.
What an amazing ER doctor. Can you imagine if he wasn’t there? What a miracle!
