It was supposed to be a relaxed vacation in Hawaii, but Canadians Jennifer Kimmel-Huculak and her husband Darren soon found out their November 2013 getaway would cost much more than they bargained for.


Jennifer was 24 weeks pregnant at the time and ended up delivering a daughter by emergency C-section at a hospital in Hawaii. The price tag? $950,000.
