New Dad Walks into Glass Window (1959)

(This story was originally written and recorded for Podcast #66, released on September 22, 2013.)

Friday, June 19, 1959, is a day that Mr. and Mrs. Jens Peter Lund will certainly never forget.  

It all started at 8:37 PM when a very pregnant Mrs. Lund said it was time.  Just two minutes later they were in the car on the way to the hospital.  

They didn’t get there in time.  Just 13 minutes later, at 8:50 PM, their 7-pound, 9-ounce baby boy was born in the car.  

Nine minutes later, the Lunds finally arrived at their destination.  In his excitement, Mr. Lund mistook a plate glass window for the entrance to the hospital.  Next thing you know, he was being treated for cuts to his arm and nose.
