Baby Boy Is Born In The Back Of A NYC Taxi In Times Square– A Miracle On Wheels!

Broadway has its newest star — a bouncing baby boy who was born in the back of a cab in the heart of the theater district!

Even Sweeney gave birth to little Finn Murray Sweeney in front a of a cheering crowd on the corner of West 51st Street and Seventh Avenue when her speeding cab couldn’t make it from her Brooklyn home to Manhattan’s Roosevelt Hospital in time!

Even’s mad dash began when her contractions started at her Prospect Heights home at 5pm April 20. Her partner Inez Sweeney called a taxi to take them into Manhattan, but Even was already ready to deliver when driver Juan Hernandez arrived.

Inez tells the New York Post, “I looked, and there he was,” referring to little Finn’s crowning head!

Juan put his foot down and called emergency services, who set off to intercept the cab, while Even tried hard to keep little Finn from arriving too soon.

“I was just thinking, ‘How do I keep this baby inside me,’ but you can’t do that,” she says.

“I told the driver to make sure he locked the doors, because I knew I would be kicking them.”

A convoy of cops and paramedics eventually caught up with the maternity ward-on-wheels as Juan steered his cab through Midtown and paramedics Sylvia Farrell and Scott Strong sprang into action, delivering Finn and scooping mother and child into their waiting ambulance.

Mommy and son are now recovering from their dramatic introduction, and they didn’t even have to pay for the taxi — Juan waived the charge!

Is that the most dramatic birth story you’ve ever read? Or do you have a better tale for us HollyMoms?

Why did they need to go all the way out to Manhattan to deliver the baby? Prospect Heights is in Brooklyn, and there are multiple hospitals in each of the 5 boroughs. Something’s off here.

Hopefully she at least paid to have the taxi cleaned up…
