Customers cheered in the toilet paper aisle at a Missouri Walmart, not because of an toilet paper delivery, but a delivery of a different kind. A woman gave birth to a happy, healthy baby girl according to newser.
Jessica Hinkle, manager of the store in Springfield, said the woman alerted employees that her water had broke. Hinkle held up a sheet for privacy while a labor nurse who happened to be in the store and firefighters helped the woman deliver her baby in just 45 minutes, KYTV reported.
The birth took place as shoppers nationwide, and even at this very Missouri Walmart, are converging on stores to stockpile toilet paper and other basics amid the coronavirus pandemic.
"You know a feel good moment, everybody's going through so much and with a baby it's like everything comes full circle," Hinkle said.
The manager, Jessica Hinkle, checked in recently and she said both mom and the baby are doing well.
