About three weeks ago -- two weeks before her due date -- Courtney DeConto began having contractions, so she and her husband Marco began the drive from Wake Forest to Rex Hospital in Raleigh. But while en route, DeConto's water broke.
The couple then called 911 from the road, ABC News reports. Though the operator urged them them to stay put, they decided to keep driving. About 15 minutes into their trip, DeConto gave birth to a son, Ransom.
