Baby Delivered Between Floors
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., June 1 (AP)-An expectant mother was being moved to the maternity ward of Erlanger hospital yesterday when the elevator stuck near the fourth floor landing.
A nurse was aboard and made the delivery without the aid of a physician. Meanwhile, the elevator was repaired and continued on its journey.
Both mother and daughter are reported “doing nicely.”
