GOOD NEWS Army Dad Sees Quadruplets Being Born 6,500 Miles Away Via FaceTime
An Army dad was stationed more than 6,500 miles away when his wife went into labor with their quadruplets. But he was able to watch their bundles of joy be delivered, thanks to FaceTime.
Army Capt. Tony Burch - who was deployed to South Korea in September - watched as his wife Mary Pat brought their three sons and daughter into the world at AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center in Hinsdale, Illinois.
Mary Pat said in a statement from the hospital, "He could see the babies as they were taken to the warmers, and he got the rundown on how they were doing and how much they weighed."
"Perfect timing, you know, everything clicked together, and I was able to see the babies as they were getting cleaned off," Tony told WLS-TV.
Four days later, the proud father was able to meet the babies in person - without the use of technology - when he returned to the U.S. for a special trip, the hospital said in an Instagram post.
Tony is set to return to the U.S. full-time in June.
