Posted on 04/25/2012 6:54:58 AM PDT by BenLurkin
SUN CITY (CBS) Stephanie Felix wasnt due for another week but her baby arrived right in the middle of the 15 Freeway in Riverside County.
Felix and her boyfriend Jose Gonzalez, of West Covina, were visiting her mother at her Sun City home when Felix awoke early in the morning with labor pains. Her sister came over to drive her to the hospital but while in transit Felixs baby decided she couldnt wait any longer.
Well I said that I felt we werent going to make it because I could feel the baby coming, Felix said.
The family called 911 and pulled the car over to the side of the 15 Freeway, where little Lea Racio Gonzalez was born. The infant, weighing 5 lb. 14 oz, was a surprise to her family who hadnt known the babys gender.
The babys grandmother delivered the baby with no prior medical experience.
Felixs sister used her camera to document the entire experience.
Paramedics arrived to find the infant wrapped in a blanket, which Felixs sister had the foresight to bring along, and the babys mother and family in good spirits.
Felixs sister said she will never sell that car after the momentous family memory that occurred inside her SUV that day.

I know...How do you get that smell out of a perfectly good SUV?
How much of a surprise can it be? There’re only two options.
This is a news story??
This happens a lot.
Now you know only doctors can deliver a baby. /sarc
Notice that they had to say SOMETHING about the vehicle AT THE VERY END, almost apologetically, because it was an (*sneer*) SUV.
Bet someone on staff was lamenting that it wasn’t a “green” car.
It would have been worldwide news if it had been in an Ohm, Erg, Watt (whatever).
“Desperate woman in racing car throws out the anchor (baby)”...
So did they turn around and go home?
From the story, the “anchor baby” is a bastard. At least it was not delivered at taxpayer expense.
