A Trip To McDonald’s Ends With Woman Giving Birth In The Bathroom

Over the years there have been a number of births at fast food and retail stores across the country. This weekend McDonald’s was added to the list.

The Star Tribune reports that a woman gave birth in the bathroom of a St. Paul-area McDonald’s on Saturday.

The ordeal began around 5:20 p.m. when the manager, who was working in the back office, heard screaming coming from the lobby.

At that point, the woman’s mother yelled for someone to call 911.

When police and an ambulance arrived they blocked new customers from entering the building and notified management that there was a baby in the bathroom.

The assistant manager tells the Tribune that a short time later he saw the woman being carted to the ambulance.

Authorities declined to provide additional information about the birth or the new mother, except to say the woman was in her 20s.

The McDonald’s manager says he was told the baby was born prematurely.
