Doctor Delivers Baby In parking Lot Outside Utah Hospital

A doctor arriving for work has delivered a baby in the parking lot of a Utah hospital before performing emergency breaths to assist the infant, who was not breathing properly after the birth. The Herald Journal reported Dr. Barrett Labrum assisted the woman who was giving birth in the passenger seat of the van outside Logan Regional Hospital. The doctor of osteopathic medicine saw a couple struggling and found the woman was already close to delivering her sixth child. Labrum performed mouth-to-mouth ventilation on the baby, who was safe in the hospital with her mother less than two hours later.
