Mother gives birth to baby in parking lot


AKRON, OHIO (KWWL) -- We've all heard of special deliveries, but it's safe to say one Ohio family has a birth story to remember.

A doctor told Erika Ostapowicz she had plenty of time to get to the hospital on March 16 when her water broke.

But even doctor's aren't right all the time.

Ostapowicz and her husband were on the road when she felt the baby coming.

Her husband called 911, and then pulled into a parking lot of a food bank.

The paramedics were there right away and jumped right into action.

Mom and baby Kendel are both doing just fine and could be out of the hospital as early as March 18.
