WALKER COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

Eight months later, a new mom recalls what it was like to give birth in a parking lot after a person called in a bomb threat to Walker Baptist Medical Center.

"I was just thankful she was OK," Tessa Kilgore said.

Kilgore will definitely have a unique birth story to tell her daughter, Kylie, one day. It's one that involves a bomb threat, the SWAT team, and Kilgore being wheeled out of the hospital while in labor.

"I couldn't think. I was like, 'This is so embarrassing.' I said, 'I don't know what I'm going to do,'" said Kilgore. "I was scared. I almost cried when they rode us out, but they were like it's probably just a bomb threat, nothing is going to happen. I'm just thankful there was nobody in surgery and I didn't have to have a C-section."

Within 15 minutes of entering the parking lot time had run out and Kylie was ready to come into the world.

"They didn't have gloves, they had to get them from an ambulance and by then it was too late," said Kilgore.

Despite the anxiety and fear, Kilgore safely gave birth.

"Something could have happened to her, me," said Kilgore. "I'm still mad about it, to this day I'm still mad about it."

And while there are no permanent scars, Kylie is at least for the moment going to be an only child.

"First and last," said Kilgore laughing. "That it's for me, that ruined it."

Kilgore says she's so thankful for how the hospital handled the ordeal.

Brandon Peake was arrested in connection to the bomb threat. At the time, authorities also suspected Peake in a bank robbery that happened the same day.
