LDS Woman Helps Save Neighbor Who Delivered Baby Next to Mailbox

It's amazing that Candice Rieske and her husband were able to respond so quickly and so well to this critical and unusual situation.

Most of the time a knock at the door of your home means a salesperson or someone you're expecting has arrived. But a knock on the door turned an Orem home into a make-shift hospital.

Candice Rieske teaches piano lessons. She was waiting for a student Saturday morning when she heard a knock on the door. It wasn't a piano student.

"I opened the door and there's a lady standing there holding a baby that was newborn, covered in goop, had the placenta connected with the umbilical cord," she explained. "So I yelled back to my husband to call 911."
