A baby girl was saved during an emergency C-section just moments after her mother died in a car crash while on her way to give birth.

Sarah Iler, 26, of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, was driving south on the Interstate 55 with her husband Matt Rider, 34, on Wednesday morning.

Iler was already dilated and one day past her due date, and was extremely excited to welcome her first child, according to a Go Fund Me set up for the family.

But a tanker truck crashed into a Nissan SUV, which in turn hit the couple’s vehicle, a red Chevrolet Blazer, around 8:04am, the Southeast Missourian reported.
The tanker truck then crashed into the Chevrolet and pushed the SUV into the median strip.

The Chevrolet overturned, throwing Iler and Rider. The mother-to-be died on impact but rescuers still gave her CPR to save her child.

They took her to the Saint Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau and performed an emergency C-section.

Rider wrote on Facebook last month that he couldn’t wait to welcome Maddyson even though he wasn’t her biological father.

‘I thank God for Sarah every day,’ he added in his post.

Iler’s sisters and mother said they did not know yet who would take care of the little girl.

Kasandra told the Southeast Missourian they hadn’t visited Rider in the hospital in St Louis and that they had kept in touch via pictures instead.

The Ilers are hoping to raise $5,000 to organize Iler’s funeral in Poplar Bluff, where she is from originally.

Iler, who once worked as a cashier at Taco Bell, did not have life insurance according to her family.

‘The thought never once entered my head that that baby might die,’ Kasandra told the Southeast Missourian.

‘I felt my sister gave her life to save this baby. That’s how God wanted it. We’ve been calling her our little miracle.’
