A PREGNANT woman who was on her way to work in Fareham when she was involved in a four-car pile up on the motorway has been to visit the firefighters who saved her and her baby’s life.

Emma Sayer, from Eastleigh, was going to say farewell to her colleagues before she went on maternity leave when she was involved in the collision on the M3 at junction 13, in November 2012.

Firefighters had to cut the 27-year-old out of the car. She was only two weeks away from giving birth, so she was taken to hospital and induced and baby Grace was born.

Emma said: ‘I was terrified for the safety of my baby. I remember begging all the people who attended the scene to get me to hospital as soon as possible.

‘The fire crews were fantastic – they chatted to me the whole time which helped to keep me calm – especially when they started taking the roof off my car. I can’t thank the team enough for all they did for me that morning.’

Earlier this week, Emma and Grace visited Eastleigh Fire Station to say thank you.
