A woman who went shopping at a local supermarket in Fresno, California, left with more that just groceries. Shortly after coming into the store, she unexpectedly went into labor and gave birth to a baby boy.
A surveillance video shows the woman kneeling down as store employees try to figure out what to do. Then, the butcher takes off his apron and uses it to hold the newborn baby as the store owner cuts the umbilical cord with scissors provided by the cook.
“She was right there like bending, oh my God, oh my God I am having my baby,” said store owner Issimar Sepulveda. “We all lived moments of chaos. I was so nervous and just praying for baby’s health because he looked purple.”
