MOORE, Oklahoma -

The stories we continue to hear are amazing. News 9's Karl Torp spoke with a woman who was actually in labor right before the storm hit.

Shayla Taylor was in the middle of labor on the second floor of Moore Medical Center when the tornado hit, but her baby wasn't the only thing on her mind.

Her family, including her husband, were sent downstairs to the cafeteria, but Shayla was too far along to be moved. Moments later, a direct hit.

Shayla's husband rushed upstairs to find his wife in the dark, but otherwise OK. Hours later after being properly transported, Shayla would give birth to little Braiden.
