Woman gives birth in McDonald's bathroom



POLK COUNTY, Fla. - A woman gave birth to a baby boy inside a Lake Wales McDonald's bathroom Monday morning.

Shardonnay Hill, 20, said she went into labor three months early.

A manager said a few employees stayed on the phone with the Polk County dispatch center and helped deliver the baby.

They even set up an area in the bathroom for Hill to give birth.

"She said to a couple of employees, 'Go and get something.' She said, 'Get some boxes and let's flatten them out and get her to lie down. She can't have the baby over the toilet,'" said the baby's grandmother, Barbara Albert.

The baby, named Joshua, was not breathing when Hill gave birth.

However, paramedics arrived and got the baby breathing before airlifting him to All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg.
