Woman Goes To Store In Search Of Books, Comes Out With Baby

TORRANCE, Calif. (October 19, 2013)--A woman who walked into a Los Angeles-area Barnes & Noble to look for books came out with a baby instead.

Firefighters delivered the baby Friday night in the bookstore's lobby at Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance, Calif.

Fire Department Capt. Steve Deuel said the firefighters responded to a report of a woman in labor and were deciding whether to put her in an ambulance or keep her in the store when the baby arrived.

They delivered a healthy boy.

Deuel says the mother and child, whose names were not released, were taken to a hospital and both are doing well.

He says while firefighters rarely deliver babies, they're trained to do it.
