CONNELLSVILLE, Pa. — A woman gave birth to a boy outside
a western Pennsylvania hospital — a delivery that happened
so quickly that the newborn wound up in his mother's
"It happened so fast," Rebecca Johnson, 24, told the Daily
Courier in Connellsville. "I didn't know what happened until
he was in my pant leg."
Johnson had just gotten out of the car at Highlands Hospital in
Connellsville and was still in the parking lot when her 5-pound,
15-ounce son, Mason Matthew Parkinson, arrived Wednesday.
An emergency room physician cut the umbilical cord in the parking
lot, and doctors attended to Johnson until she could be taken to
Uniontown Hospital, which has a maternity unit.
Mason, Johnson's fourth child, was doing well.
