Fortunately, someone who knew about the Smith’s situation contacted someone who had a father who lived across the street from a Fire Station and help was quickly on it’s way.
A large garbage truck made it’s way to the front of the apartment complex, where Greg was shocked to learn that it was there to transport him and Andrea safely to the hospital.
“They said, ‘We’re here for you,’ ” an amazed-sounding Greg told PEOPLE.
“The next thing I know, there’s a ride for Annie and Greg,” Greg’s mother, Sue Chor says. “They grabbed their coats and umbrellas and the baby’s bags. Then off they went.”
Neighbors then created a human chain to help get Andrea safely aboard the truck.
“We were soaked,” Greg says. “We sat on top of all these fire hoses, while firemen drove us to the hospital. They were careful to go slow and keep us safe.”
