A woman gave birth to a baby at a McDonald’s restaurant in Madera, police say.

It happened Monday night when the woman went into labor in the lobby, according to a Madera police Facebook post.

When officers and paramedics from Pistoresi Ambulance arrived, they realized there was no time to transport the mom. So they helped deliver the baby at the fast food restaurant, ushering into the world a healthy baby boy.

The woman and baby were then taken to the hospital, where they are doing well, police said.

“It’s not everyday you get to help deliver a new born baby at McDonald’s,” the post read.

As unique as the situation may seem, this isn’t the first time a baby has been born at a McDonald’s. In fact, a baby was born in late March inside a McDonald’s restroom stall in Illinois.
