A LeClaire couple found themselves in a bind on the day their son was born – temperatures were hovering around 0° and the baby was coming fast. The City of Davenport shared what happened at Fire Station 8 on Tuesday evening, December 26: It was shortly after 8 p.m. when Hillary Perry, pregnant with their second child, told her husband Casey that the baby was coming. The pair hopped into their Chevy Tahoe and headed toward the hospital but baby coming too fast. When they called OnStar for help they were advised to pull over and deliver the baby, but in such cold temperatures Casey said that wasn’t an option.
