Spicy Pregnancy Cravings Led To A Parking Lot Delivery

This baby really wanted a Chipotle burrito first hand.

The need for Chipotle is real. One soon-to-be mother and father were answering the call of faux-Mexican food and had just gotten out of their car at the Chipotle parking lot when the mom felt her water break.

But this wasn’t an ordinary pregnancy. This kid was going to have that burrito Right. Now.

Knowing that there wasn’t any time for takeout or to even drive to the hospital, dad called 911 and got Angie Schell, a 17-year veteran of Colorado's South Metro dispatch center. She’s seen (or rather, she’s heard) a lot of terrible things, but a burrito-bananas-baby is easily a first.

Her calm and collected instructions helped mom and dad deliver the baby in the parking lot, with everything caught on tape.

The call came in at 9:05 AM. First, dad can be heard announcing to the dispatcher in no uncertain terms that this baby will not wait. "Oh my god the baby's coming!”

Used to taking control of a conversation, although usually under far worse circumstances, Schell told mom and dad exactly what to do. "With each contraction apply firm but gentle pressure to keep the baby's head from delivering too fast," Schell’s voice is heard on the dispatch recordings.


Not only did she walk the family through a very rapid delivery, she also had the presence of mind to tell the new parents some things that might not have been obvious in the heat of the moment. "Remember, the baby will be slippery so don't drop it."

Soon, the sound of a crying infant can be heard, and Schell breathed a sigh of relief.

"I've been the last voice that many people have spoken to, so it's really nice to be able to be there for their first breath, too," Schell told NBC News.

After a brief trip to the hospital to make sure everyone was alright, the doctors gave mom and little Jaden a clean bill of health. Now everyone is home, safe and sound.

And the craziest thing? The entire delivery happened in the Chipotle parking lot in just under 6 minutes. The exact time of Jaden’s birth: 9:11 AM.
