OCALA, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida couple is celebrating after their baby girl was unexpectedly born in the front seat of their car while on the way to hospital.
Laura Jimenez had already been to the hospital the night before but was sent home because her labor was not progressing.
On Thursday morning, the baby's father Leobardo Villasana started driving Jimenez to the hospital after her water broke.
But as they battled their way through sluggish rush hour traffic, Jimenez said she had to push.
The mother said she was surprised at the easy birth of the eight-pound baby. This is her third child.
Villasana continued driving to the hospital, never stopping the car for the birth.
The Ocala Star Banner (http://tinyurl.com/bxug9sl) reports mother and baby are in good health.
