Milan, Feb 7 IANS | 11 months ago

A 37-year-old woman gave birth to a baby girl in the early hours of Friday on a street in the northern Italian city of Milan as she waited to catch the bus to a local hospital.

The woman believed she was in the early stages of labour but her contractions rapidly intensified and she delivered the infant at the bus stop on the southwestern outskirts of Milan.

The woman's South American husband was with her and had called an ambulance but by the time it arrived, he was already cradling the newborn baby in his arms.

The mother and baby were admitted to Milan's San Carlo hospital, where doctors said both were doing well. The baby is the couple's fourth child.
