A woman gave birth without a doctor at a South Lake Tahoe, Calif., bus stop while waiting for help to arrive, South Lake Tahoe police say.
Maria Ortiz-Corado was about 10 days from her due date and enjoying a quiet evening at home Tuesday when she went into labor, The Sacramento Bee reported.
Her husband, Jonatan, called a taxi to take them to a hospital and while they waited at a bus stop for the cab to arrive, Ortiz-Corado went into labor.
Jonatan called South Lake Tahoe police around 12:38 a.m. PDT Wednesday. Dispatchers Jill Broadfoot and Linda Clark sent police and fire department medical personnelto the scene and coached Jonatan through the birthing process, the Bee said.
Officers Angie Kallstrom and Chris Webber and Sgt. Brad Williams arrived as 6-pound, 3 ounce, David Corado was born -- cold but healthy.
