Woman Gives Birth in the Back of an Arecibo Cab


A Brooklyn woman traveling from Prospect Heights wasn’t able to make it all the way to Roosevelt Hospital and ended up giving birth in the back of a livery cab, with the help of its gracious driver. Based on previous calls to Arecibo’s steadfast dispatcher, we imagine the conversation went something like this: “HELP! I’m in labor!” “Okay, five minutes.” [NYP]
