It was an exciting and very unusual day for the employees of a Subway restaurant in Minden, NV, located approximately 40 miles south of Reno, when a woman burst in to the restaurant, at approximately 9:30 am, loudly announcing she was in labor.
The unidentified woman said,
I’m in labor. I’m going to have it right now!
There were no customers in the restaurant and, as the pregnant mother raced to the restroom of the Subway restaurant, the two employees on-duty, the Manager and Assistant Manager, scrambled to assist the mother-to-be.
Assistant Manager, Flora Vargas said that she and her boss knew they had to help the woman and made attempts at sanitizing the Subway restaurant restroom by placing subway sandwich wrappers, rags and trash bags on the floor.
As soon as the woman hit the floor, the baby’s head was already visible and the employees focused on keeping the woman calm.
Fortunately, paramedics were nearby and arrived in time to assist with the delivery.
After the baby was delivered, paramedics transported the mother and her newborn child to the Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center and mother and child are reportedly both healthy.
Vargas said that the woman was accompanied by her sister and also told her that she was 21-years-old and already a mother to three other children.
After going through the experience of helping to deliver a baby, Vargas urged her boss to provide training to employees on delivering babies.
It seems that she and her boss had great instincts and knew what to steps to take to Deliver a Baby in an Emergency Childbirth
Kudos to Flora Vargas for keeping calm, taking action and helping the mother to deliver a healthy baby at Subway.
