Christmas holds additional meaning for one family who is rejoicing after the birth of a miracle baby. A family in Florida is celebrating a miracle after a woman in a coma suddenly woke up to give birth.
Jenny Quiles was hit by a tow truck two weeks ago as she tried to cross the street to get to a doctor’s appointment. In the moments before impact, her motherly instincts kicked in. She shielded her belly, likely saving her baby girl.
Jenny still suffered a traumatic brain injury and was placed in a medically induced coma. There were plans to deliver her baby via c-section in a few weeks, but little Angel Noemi Quiles decided to come early.
“From day one, none of this was expected,” Angel Quiles told local TV news station KTVU. “I thought I was I was going to lose my wife. I thought I was going lose my baby. And here we are celebrating the fact that the baby is born and Jenny is doing a lot better today.”
According to a CBN News report, Jenny was able to go home in time for Christmas.
The proud new parents shared their miracle story of survival with CBN News only days after mom’s December release from the hospital.
Angel Quiles recalled hearing the news that his wife was hit by a tow truck.
“When I got the call, at first, I was like ‘She got into an accident. It’s a car accident. It must not be too bad,’” he told CBN News.
“Normally they would take precautions with a woman that’s pregnant. That is probably why she is in the hospital. When they told me she was walking and it was physically, bodily harm, I said, ‘Jesus!’” he said.
Angel’s initial cry to Jesus was the first of many prayers for his wife, who doctors diagnosed as unresponsive and bleeding in five different places in the brain.
They were prepared to operate and drill a hole in her skull to relieve pressure when Angel called on more people to pray.
Angel described what happened next.
“Somehow – we don’t know how this happened – there was a miraculous hole that was already created in the back of her head which started to leak blood. So, in turn they didn’t have to drill a hole — the hole was already drilled,” he said.
Angel counts that hole as only the first miracle. His wife also awoke from a medically induced coma.
“It’s like she is trying to tell me that she is about to give birth,” Angel recalled. “I am not sure what she is trying tell me.”
“I ask her OB-GYN if there is any way we can check and the OB-GYN comes in at about five or six o’clock in the morning. I go and she says, ‘Hey, you need to come back in. Jenny is two centimeters dilated.’ I said, ‘How can that be?’” he recalled.
Doctors soon delivered a healthy Angel Naomi Quiles by caesarean section. The infant went home with dad to meet family in November, and on Dec. 12, 2014 mom returned home from the hospital after months of physical therapy.
The family recently announced on a Go Fund Me page dedicated to Jenny that they are now unemployed and need help.
