Indiana mom gives birth to baby during heart attack

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A baby born during a heart attack: that's the scary situation that happened to an Indiana mom.

Allie Hershberger had chest pains. She called her doctor even though she was convinced it was pregnancy-related pains. Doctors performed an EKG and realized the nearly 9-month-pregnant woman was having a heart attack. Then, they made a mad dash to deliver her baby by C-section.

"She smiled," Hershberger said. "But I think this has really made us appreciate life and having a little one around. We definitely do not take anything for granted."

Both Allie and her daughter, Sam, are doing well.
