Woman Delivers Baby While Walking to Hospital

Right when the Monday morning rush was gearing up, a baby rushed into the world.

A woman was walking toward a hospital when she went into labor in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Lincoln Heights at 7:37 a.m., according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

A good Samaritan offered her blankets and gave aid, an LAPD spokesman said. A spokesman earlier said an LAPD officer helped deliver the baby, but later corrected that information, saying an officer did not assist with the birth.

The baby was born near the intersection of Main and Daly streets, a LA Fire Department spokesman said. Paramedics were dispatched to the location.

The mother, 25 years old, was well and conscious following her baby's birth, police said. Police and fire officials didn't provide the condition of the baby.
