Dad delivers baby himself — inside a hospital room

South Florida Sun Sentinel, February 26, 2014
Parents never know what to expect when they're expecting. But Zaheer Ali, 36, got much more than a handful when he said he delivered his baby daughter at Bethesda Hospital East in Boynton Beach, without the help of any doctors or nurses. Lisa Kronhaus, a spokeswoman at Bethesda Hospital East, wrote in a news release that Ali was alone for two minutes before a nurse came into the room and completed the delivery after seeing the baby's head crowning. Ali, who works in Information Technology, doesn't have medical experience, and he didn't expect to need it when he brought his pregnant wife, Indira, to the hospital on Saturday.
