MAPLE GROVE, Minn. (AP) — Elissa Simonson didn't quite make it to a hospital for the birth of her third child. But, she was very close.
Simonson and her husband, Josh, knew the birth of their baby was imminent as they walked up the sidewalk to Maple Grove Hospital, Minn., on Tuesday. But as they neared the entrance, Elissa realized she couldn't make it inside. Josh says his wife got down on her knees next to a bench as he bolted into the hospital to find help.
By the time her husband ran back outside with medical personnel, Elissa had given birth, behind the bench. Mother and baby were rushed inside.
