Pregnant woman Rachel Poole stabbed while deployed soldier husband watches helplessly on Facetime

EL PASO, Texas -- A routine video call quickly became horrifying for a U.S. soldier deployed thousands of miles from his El Paso, Texas home.

Pregnant 31-year-old Rachel Poole was using Apple's video conferencing software, Facetime, with her husband Justin Pele Poole when police say Corey Bernard Moss started attacking her with a knife, according to ABC News .

CNN reports Moss broke into the home before Rachel Poole arrived and waited for her. He told investigators she owed him money for car repairs.

The baby—a girl—was successfully delivered and her mother is recovering, ABC 7 (KVIA) reports .

Poole’s family and friends have started an online fundraiser to help off-set medical costs and recovery.
