South Sound couple’s car stolen from hospital parking garage

From KIRO-TV 7 News, Seattle:

A Yelm couple, already reeling over the premature birth of their twin daughters, is now stuck without a working vehicle.

Their vehicle was stolen Saturday night out of the parking garage at Tacoma General Hospital.

It was recovered a couple of hours later. But nearly everything in it, including their IDs, is gone.

This should be a joyous time for this Yelm couple — the long-awaited birth of their twins.

Instead, misery has continued to pile up for this couple in the two months that they have been here at Tacoma General Hospital.


“I’m hurt,” said Shanda Ring. “I’m angry. I am desperate. I want my children to be healthy.”

She and her husband have been at Tacoma General Hospital since the middle of October, in a desperate attempt to carry her twin daughters for as long as possible to term.

But the twins arrived nine weeks early, with a multitude of health issues.


A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for the family to get through this difficult time.
