Spaniard Gives Birth in Street
Jan. 06, 2001
MALAGA, Spain (AP) _ A pregnant woman watching an Epiphany parade _ symbolizing the arrival of the Three Kings with gifts for the baby Jesus _ went into labor and gave birth in the street, news reports said Saturday.
Both the mother and her infant boy are in good shape, the news agency Efe said.
The 35-year-old woman started having contractions as she watched the parade in the southern town of Benalmadena in Malaga province and tried to make it to the hospital, but the crowd was too thick for her to move.
So she sat down on a bench and waited for the Red Cross, and eventually gave birth right there, Efe said. The woman's name was not released.
