A woman gave birth in one of the bathrooms of a Sam's Club
One of the most unusual places to be born has to be the bathroom of a Sam’s Club. That’s what happened to a woman in Fayetteville, Arkansas, who went to Sam’s Club to do some shopping and left with a bundle of joy instead.
According to 5 News, some of the store employees helped the woman to the bathroom and assisted her in the birth. They also called an ambulance to try and get her to the hospital, but the baby was born before it got there. Luckily, the employees followed a list of steps to help the woman, and baby and mother were both in good health after the birth.
