31-year-old Rachel Poole was 9 months pregnant at the time she was stabbed by a man hiding in her home on Wednesday. The suspect, named as Corey Bernard Moss, reportedly stabbed Poole from behind with a stainless steel knife.
During the attack, her husband, Justin Pele Poole, an American soldier stationed thousands of miles away in Asia, saw the attack unfold as the two talked over FaceTime.
It has been revealed that Poole was in critical condition in the hospital when her baby, Isabella, was born. Doctors performed a successful cesarean section. The baby is listed in good condition.
It was also reported that the woman recognized her attacker and repeatedly screamed his name to her husband.
The 19-year-old suspect allegedly told investigators that the victim owed him money for vehicle repairs.
On Facebook Saturday, the victim's husband, Justin Poole showed pictures of his newborn daughter and recovering wife. On one photo of his wife, he wrote: "My wife fought back so that her daughter could live. But she can not see out of her eye still at all. And can't see or hold her baby until she recovers."
