Woman Gives Birth to Surprise Baby Outside Delaware Hotel

Posted: May 30, 2018 1:01 PM Updated:

DEWEY BEACH, Del. (AP)- A wild Memorial Day weekend had a happy ending in Dewey Beach after a 19-year-old who apparently didn't know she was pregnant gave birth outside a hotel.           

Dewey Beach Police Sgt. Cliff Dempsey says that he got the call about a woman about to ride her bicycle home because she was feeling unwell, but instead gave birth in the parking garage of Hyatt Place. Officers found her holding her baby and took them to a hospital.           

Several people were arrested early Sunday after two officers responding to a street brawl were hit by a car and police horse was punched in its face.           

Dewey Mayor TJ Redefer said he was "overjoyed" by the birth after "this crazy weekend of Memorial Day fun."
