A North Carolina couple is telling an incredible story of how their new baby was delivered.Dave and Heather Pond were headed to the hospital over the weekend when Heather realized the baby wasn't going to wait.

Dave raced down the highway at 80 miles per hour, but with ditches on both sides, there was no where to pull over.

Heather was unable to fight the urge to push any longer, and their baby girl Kiley was born.

"I could feel that Kiley was there. You could feel the top of her head kind of crowning. I just see her reach down, and Kiley comes out, and she just grabs her with her left hand and pulls her up and cradles her to her chest, and we're still going right down the road," the father said.

They finally made it to the nearest fire station, and a few minutes later, an ambulance took mom, dad and baby Kiley to the hospital.

They're all doing just fine.
