Many moms have a good story about the day their baby was born, but not many have as good a child birth story as Norristown's Rachel Fecho – and it wasn't even her baby.
Fecho, a branch manager for the Conshohocken Free Library, had left work around 1 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10, after her father called to say he and Fecho's young son were in the emergency room. The younger Fecho had dropped a railroad tie on his foot and his grandfather didn't like the look of the swelling.
Fecho says she got to Montgomery Hospital at around 1:30 p.m. and was making her way to the emergency room entrance when she was thrust into what sounds like a scene from an action movie.
