Navy vet helps deliver son in parking lot

LATROBE, Pa. — A western Pennsylvania man who missed his daughter’s birth when he was serving overseas with the Navy two years ago was more hands-on for his son’s birth.

Jon Quicquaro said he was driving his wife, Rochelle, to Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital in Latrobe on Thursday when her labor intensified.

The man said he pulled into a Barnes & Noble parking lot on Route 30 and called 911.

But before help could arrive, the couple’s 7-pound, 11-ounce son, Wesley, did — right into Quicquaro’s arms. Wesley joins sister Maci, who was born when her father was stationed in Iraq.

Quicquaro said missing his daughter’s birth “has been a huge regret” but said being there to deliver his son “is exactly what I needed in my life.”

Latrobe is about 40 miles east of Pittsburgh.
