COLCHESTER, Conn. (WTNH) -- The blizzard came two weeks before a Colchester mom's due date but her new baby didn't want to wait. The little girl ended up being born in a parking lot.
"She definitely had a mind of her own and decided now is the time I am not waiting any more," said Donna Ambrosia, the mother.
At 7 pounds four ounces little Elizabeth Judy Ambrosia is an average size baby but how she came into this world was no average delivery. Donna Ambrosia went into labor during Friday night's blizzard.
"She said Jim we got to go and I looked out the window and I couldn't see nothing across the street. It was white out conditions. I said you're joking right," said Jim Ambrosia, the father.
No joke, Jim Ambrosia called 911 for help. An ambulance and a plow truck arrived. Fortunately the EMT was also a nurse and the driver was very experienced.
"In my 23 years this was my worst ride," said Royce Knowles, Colchester Hayward Fire.
"We saw a tractor trailor jack knifed on the way, several people in the median spun out," said Jim Ambrosia.
While mom and dad went into the ambulance, the rest of the kids had to stay home. Dakota was in charge so they were in good hands but they were also very nervous and excited as to what was going to happen.
"I was very nervous when they were going there. I was just praying they would make it safe," said Dakota Ambrosia, bother.
"I was kind of scared when the ambulance came but I really excited at the same time," said Casandra Neudecker, sister.
They had just made it to the parking lot of the William Backus hospital when the baby was born.
"Her name's Elizabeth so we were going to call her Lizzy so my brother actually suggested Jim call her Blizzy. I said exactly," said Jim Ambrosia.
Mother and Blizzy are doing just fine and the family is thankful.
"She is the most adorablest, most precious thing I've ever seen ever," said Katheryn Neudecker, sister.
