She went to sit on the toilet and then things started to happen that were beyond her control.
“I hadn’t felt anything all day and all of sudden, out of nowhere, he came,” said Heather Gibbs.
By her side were firefighters from the Port of Seattle, including Steven Barberie.
“I heard a splash in the bathroom followed by some frantic shouting of, “Someone grab my baby,” said Barberie.
The baby’s father, Billy Gibbs, was waiting outside and couldn’t believe what he was seeing and hearing.
“I looked inside and I saw the firefighter EMT pulling him out of the toilet and I was in utter shock,” said Billy Gibbs.
The baby made it to the hospital and his parents said he is doing well in the neonatal intensive care unit of Valley Medical Center, despite coming into the world 11 weeks early.
The mother is also doing fine. The family has named the little boy Wyatt Dale.
“My doctor said it was divine intervention, because within minutes we would have been on a plane in the air, coming right back down,” said Heather Gibbs.
