BOSTON (AP) – A Boston woman has succeeded at one of the all-time great Thanksgiving Day juggling acts: She cooked the turkey while helping deliver her baby granddaughter.
Patricia McCalop was in the middle of preparing the meal when her daughter suddenly went into labor two weeks early.
McCalop called 911, and a dispatcher talked her through the delivery and helped her confirm that the baby girl was breathing.
Paramedics arrived shortly afterward and took Africa McCalop and her newborn to the hospital. They are both in good health.
Patricia McCalop said she kept running between the kitchen and her daughter in labor because she didn’t want the turkey to burn while helping her child deliver the baby.
“I’m like, ‘What are you doing with the turkey? We got the baby,’” Africa McCalop told the Boston Herald.
The infant weighed six pounds.
Holy shit.Â Makes sense though, because you know the Dad would have been way more pissed if he didn’t have Turkey on Thanksgiving than if his baby didn’t get delivered.
