Boston Woman Delivers Granddaughter While Cooking Thanksgiving Dinner

Fox News: A Boston woman says she was forced to split her time between helping her daughter deliver a baby at home and cooking Thanksgiving dinner.

Patricia McCalop was in the middle of preparing the meal when Africa McCalop suddenly went into labor two weeks early.

The grandmother called 911, and a dispatcher talked her through the delivery and helped her confirm that the baby girl was health and breathing.

Paramedics arrived shortly afterward and took the mother and newborn to the hospital. They are both in good health.

McCalop said she kept running between the kitchen and her daughter in labor because she didn't want the turkey to burn while helping her child deliver the baby.

The infant weighed six pounds.
