Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 6:00AM - 10:00AM

A security guard at Tampa General Hospital was screening people for Covid-19 at the entrance to the hospital when a man called for help for his wife. Philip Kalil helped deliver Vienna Garnett’s baby who already had the baby’s head in her hands. “I said [to Vienna] ‘Look, it’s you and me,'” Kalil said. “I said ‘push.’ She pushed and the baby came out.” After the baby came out the baby wasn’t crying because the cord was wrapped around its neck, but Philip quickly removed the cord and baby let out a healthy cry. “I was like, ‘Well that’s not right,'” Kalil said. “Mom said the cord was around her neck. I was like, ‘Yup, I got it. Don’t worry about it!'”
