Close call for pregnant Rock County woman

A pregnant woman makes it to a hospital in Janesville, but took a team of first responders, three ambulance crews, and a snow-plow to get her there.

Officials say the Rock County woman was driving to the hospital early Friday morning when she got stuck. A team of first responders could not get her on her way with their ambulance, and then a private ambulance also got stuck. A third ambulance was then dispatched from the Janesville Fire Department, but it, too, got stuck.

A Rock County snow-plow was sent out and the third ambulance drove behind it to get to the hospital.

A hospital spokeswoman says the woman was treated for nausea. At last word, she was not ready to have her baby yet.
