article imageFather records wife giving birth outside hospital using GoPro

By Walter McDaniel     Jul 11, 2014 in Internet
Houston - One new dad got out his GoPro to record his wife's move into the hospital but instead caught her giving birth outside. For readers watching at work the video is censored but may be a bit loud and jarring for obvious reasons.
Troy Dickerson was using his camera in the car to catch what he thought would be a full birth process inside the hospital. Instead the baby came a bit too soon and the new father recorded it outside. His wife did not seem tremendously thrilled about the situation but at least he was still there.
The video has currently gone viral with over 1 million views and climbing. As these things go we will probably see it reach 2 million at some point if those in the press continue to promote it. What is interesting to note is that this is part of the very popular #GoPro campaign which has gotten some incredible publicity for the product.
Fortunately the child and mother Kristin Dickerson both pulled through the incident and are healthy. It's good to see a happy ending here and there in an era where people record bad events as much as good ones.
More people than ever before are filming massive swathes of their life. Take Danny Pier who filmed his wife's pregnancy for months. While it may seem invasive to some we must remember that this is their personal choice to put it all up.
In an amusing twist mother Kristin works as a childbirth educator at a local hospital. She tells students that
This will never happen to you, I promise!’ But I do teach them about emergency birth so they’ll be prepared for it
according to a FOX News report. While it's certainly an interesting story we hope that our readers never have to go through a similar media event.
