Stranger helps stranded pregnant woman in rural Manitoba make it to hospital

STEINBACH, Man. — A Manitoba man says a kind stranger helped his pregnant wife make it to hospital to deliver a healthy baby boy.

Shane Wall says his wife Darlene was 12 days overdue when they started heading to Winnipeg early Monday morning from a rural area south of the city.

Along the way they hit a deer, which caused their car to break down.

Wall says after trying to flag down some vehicles someone finally stopped and gave them a ride to the St. Boniface hospital.

Darlene Wall then gave birth to a boy they have named Gunnar.

Shane Wall says he doesn't remember the name of the Good Samaritan, but would like to meet him and thank him for the ride.

"I didn't want to deliver the baby in the car," Wall said Tuesday. (CTV Winnipeg)
