Woman saves husband who emerges from coma to see son’s birth
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A Minnesota man awoke from a medically-induced coma just in time for the birth of his son after his wife, at 39 weeks pregnant, saved him from cardiac arrest.
Ashley Goette says she awoke Oct. 16 to hear her husband, Andrew Goette, gasping for air in their West St. Paul home. She called 911 and a dispatcher guided her through administering CPR. First responders arrived and rushed Andrew to United Hospital in St. Paul, where he was placed in a coma to minimize possible brain damage. Ashley told her husband she wouldn’t have the baby until he awoke, and he did several days later, neurologically intact and in time for the birth of their first child, Lennon.
