RENFREW (KDKA) — A week ago today, a Renfrew, Butler County family experienced something they say feels more like a dream than reality.
It all began – and ended – in the family car.
Little Isaac Wabiszewski was born in the back of the family Honda Pilot. His dad, Mark, was behind the wheel, trying to make it to Magee Women’s Hospital as Isaac’s grandmother, Karen Robb, a sixth grade teacher, was bringing Isaac into the world.
The baby’s mother, Kristin Wabiszewski, says: “It still feels like a story I am telling, not something I lived.”
Around 7:45 last Thursday night, Kristin’s water broke inside the family car and the car was still parked in the driveway.
As Kristin’s husband drove in a heavy rain storm with his flashers on, dialing 911, he never lost his cool.
Then, he heard his mother-in-law say, “Mark, I am holding the baby’s head in my hands.”
That was about 30 minutes after they pulled out of the driveway.
The family made it to UPMC Passavant in Cranberry and later Kristin and Issac were transported by ambulance to Magee.
Everyone is doing fine.
Kristin did tell KDKA’s Brenda Waters that several people suggested giving little Isaac the middle name of “Honda” or “pilot.” They did not.
