407 ETR gives year of free travel and gift certificate towards cost of safety seats for their car to family of baby born on the highway
May 21, 2021
Toronto, ON – 407 ETR is celebrating the birth of baby Nova Marie Campbell who was born on the side of the highway earlier this month by giving her parents a year of free travel and a gift certificate to offset the costs of baby and child car safety seats for her and her siblings.
On May 10, 2021, Troy Campbell and his wife Erika were travelling on Highway 407 ETR on their way to the hospital to have their third child. Erika was in labour and when she realized she wasn’t going to make it to the hospital, her husband pulled over. Moments later, baby Nova Marie arrived, with a 911 dispatcher and their midwife on the phone. The whole birth was caught on video which the couple posted to their YouTube channel.
“The Campbells demonstrated amazing strength under very stressful circumstances and we are thrilled that mom and baby are doing well after this emergency delivery,” said Javier Tamargo, 407 ETR’s President and CEO. “It’s not every day that we’re part of story like this, and we’re happy to send our congratulations to the Campbells with a gift to help them transport their young family around the GTA as quickly and safely as possible.”
“I never could have imagined me delivering my baby at the side of 407 ETR,” said Erika Campbell. “The amount of emotions I felt within those few moments are indescribable. But I thank God everything worked out and our new baby Nova Campbell came into this world strong and healthy.”
