On a street corner 1
Imagine you are walking down a busy city street when the pregnant woman in front of you suddenly starts giving birth. This is what happened to 39-year-old New Yorker Polly McCourt, who went into labor Monday afternoon. The Upper East side resident rushed out of her apartment building and asked for her doorman's help to hail her a cab to the hospital. The funny part is that her baby decided she wanted to come out right before the cab even arrived. In other words, McCourt gave birth right on the corner of her street!
