COBB COUNTY, Ga. - It was a reunion like no other Friday at Six Flags over Georgia. Paramedics met the baby they delivered inside the theme park. The young mother unexpectedly gave birth inside the attraction's waterpark last summer and Friday was a chance to say thank you.
“All I can say is thank you thank you very much,” Crusita said through a large smile as the mother met the people who delivered her baby at the popular theme park over the summer.
Baby Mathew made a grand entrance in July while his mother and sister hung out inside the Hurricane Harbor attraction. On Friday, the little one slept through the special reunion. Perhaps still a little tired after giving his mother the ride of her life.
Paramedics said it all started that summer day when Crusita let them know she wasn't feeling well. Just moments later she experienced labor pains.
Paramedic Wendy Marlow said she saw the mother was having contractions and brought her back to the first aid office.
That’s where Baby Mathew arrived, albeit a little early. But his family said he's doing just fine.
Park officials told FOX 5 News he's the second baby born at Six Flags over Georgia in its 51-year history.
“How many people can say ‘I was born at a park somewhere?’ Especially, one like Six Flags,” Paramedic Silas Edwards said.
His mother thinks he will want to come back to Six Flags when he is older and ride the rollercoasters. He will certainly have the opportunity. The park gave Mathew and his mom Diamond Elite Membership which guarantees free entry to any Six Flags park for the rest of their lives.
