Baby born on 12-12-12 has amazing story to tell

A Quad City family has a great story to tell after their new baby was born on 12-12-12 in their living room.

Ben Smith ran out of time to get Ashton Kettering to the hospital just after midnight Wednesday, December 12. He called 911, but it soon became clear that this baby wasn’t going to wait. Baby Orra Lynn came into the world, with the help of her dad, who was coached over the phone by dispatchers.

Mom, baby Orra and Dad are all doing great.
