Brooklyn Whitney Bio
Brooklyn Whitney and her husband lived in New Hampshire. It started out as a normal Christmas Eve for Brooklyn Whitney and Jacob Pachner. They had just come home from after a long walk, had dinner and were working on a puzzle.
Brooklyn Whitney Christmas Child
That’s when Whitney started having contractions, even though her baby wasn’t due until New Year’s Eve.
Even though the doctor had told her to wait, she knew that they had to start making their way to the hospital. They drove for about 15 minutes before Whitney told Pachner to pull over to the side of I-93, he told USA TODAY.
“OK crap, this baby is coming now,” Pachner remembered thinking. “Everything is about to start happening right now.”
He was on the phone with dispatch for about 20 minutes when Boscawen police officer Ryan Nolan arrived to the scene.
A little after midnight on Christmas morning, baby Dominic was born.
“It was something. It was the craziest call I’ve ever been on,” Nolan told WMUR-TV.
New Hampshire state troopers Sgt. Vincent Grieco and Trooper Ryan St. Cyr arrived on the scene to help get Whitney to the hospital, which was only 10 miles away.
