A Florida woman gave birth in the back of her car after a crash halted her trip to the hospital. Luckily, a nurse was close behind and assisted with the delivery of one of the twins in the back of the mangled car.

Jessica Stanley's water broke at her home in Goulds, Fla., about 20 miles southwest of Miami. Her fiancé, Antavian Milton, was rushing Stanley to Jackson South Community Hospital when their car was struck making a turn.

Nurse Betty Horne was on her way to work when she saw the crash. Horne rushed to the wreckage to see if she could help. When she looked into the damaged car a frantic Milton told her Stanley was in labor. Stanley, knocked unconscious in the crash, was in the process of giving birth. The baby was crowning by the time Horne was able to assist Stanley.

Paramedics arrived shortly after the first baby was born. The second half of the twins was born via Cesarean section. The two boys, named Antavian II and Antavian III, as well as their mother and three siblings, who were also in the car, are doing fine.

      Stanley, knocked unconscious in the crash, was in the process of giving birth. lots of women are unconscious when giving birth.

        Women might wish they were unconscience, but they are NOT unconscious when giving birth unless there is some dire complication and they have to be put under for surgery or some other emergency. Moms that have C-section babies are usually awake also. They have anethesia of course but not put to sleep.

        Almost as bad as George Foreman's five sons, all named George after their dad.

      Glad they are safe but wish they had done better by those precious babies! Somebody should have thought to offer them a baby names book if THAT was the best they could do! Imagine the teasing these boys will be subjected to as they grow and/or the confusion for doctors, medical records, teachers, etc.

        Who do you think is going to support those kids and mother, not the fiance'. It's all of us working stiffs. I think we are about at the tipping point of more people not working than people working. What's going to happen then????? And the names of the two new babies OMG. Stupidity is alive and well.

      It would have been better to make Antavian the boys' middle name and given each boy his own first name.

      thank God they are all ok. I guess that will be a life time story in their family and glad they are ok to tell it as many times as they wish. Best of Luck.

      So of course the tag "Unexpected hero who happened to be there" got my attention and I was thinking watch it be George Zimmerman. That is why I opened the story at least. For a while he was popping up everywhere. But luckily it was nurse Betty to the rescue and everything had a happy ending.

      They called the boys, Antavian II and Antavian III . What idiots. Twins with the same name, will be very confusing for everyone! Why would they do this to the babies?
