Here’s an uplifting holiday story from WCSH 6’s Newscenter crew: New Gloucester’s Spencer family received a very special Christmas gift, although it didn’t arrive by Santa’s sleigh. This present was delivered in a Nissan Sentra.
Joleen Spencer gave birth to her fourth child, Coralie Rose, in her husband’s new car on the way to the hospital in the early morning hours Sunday, at a time when otherwise not a creature was stirring — not even a mouse. Around 3 a.m., to be more specific.
Spencer, who had prayed for a quick delivery, luckily came equipped with MacGyver-like childbirth supplies, like shoestring to tie off the umbilical cord.
