The baby was born at a Reno-area Subway sandwich shop

A woman gave birth in a Subway restroom.

Of all the bizarre places that a child has been born, this must be one of the strangest: The Associated Press is reporting that a woman in labor burst into a Subway sandwich shop in Minden, Nev., about 40 miles outside Reno, and delivered a baby boy with the help of one of the shop’s employees.

No customers were in the restaurant at the time (because it happened at 9:30 a.m.), but the shop was open and the employee, Flora Vargas, was there with her manager. Vargas helped her to the bathroom and laid down sandwich wrappers and trash bags, and shortly thereafter the paramedics arrived.

“The head of the baby was already out when she went to the floor," Vargas told the Associated Press. "The baby came out really, really fast. Fortunately, the emergency service people got here really fast."

The 21 year-old woman, whose name wasn’t released, was with her sister at the time, and paramedics transported her and the baby to a local hospital. Both mother and baby are healthy and in good shape, a hospital spokesman said.


Woman gave birth in Subway bathroom in only 10 minutes, new video suggests

WEST COVINA, Calif -- A woman in California is accused of giving birth in a Subway restaurant restroom and then abandoning the baby, according to KTLA.

New surveillance video obtained by KTLA shows the woman was only in the restroom for 10 minutes.

Mary Grace Trinidad, 37, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and child abandonment after a trail of blood led officers to her, in an alleyway not far from the Subway at 2540 S. Azusa Ave.

The baby boy, discovered Monday morning by a customer and restaurant employee just after a bleeding woman was seen leaving the restroom, was hospitalized in critical condition. On Tuesday, police said the baby’s condition could not be released due to a federal health care privacy law.

Trinidad remained hospitalized and it was not known when she would be released, police said. Though police on Monday said she was 38, inmate information indicates she is 37.

The West Covina Police Department on Tuesday released a Jan. 3 booking photo of Trinidad, showing her during an arrest for possession of a controlled substance and of drug paraphernalia.

Surveillance video that was also released shows Trinidad enter the Subway restroom at 8:07 a.m., according to police.

Carrying what appears to be a purse, the woman approaches an employee at the register, who gives her a cup. The woman goes to the soda fountain, appearing to fill her cup, and then opens the nearby restroom door.

She emerges 10 minutes later, at 8:17 a.m.

Police on Monday said Trinidad gave birth in the restroom then fled, leaving the placenta in the trash can. The baby was found crying, half-submerged in the toilet, from which the umbilical cord emerged.

Firefighters arrived at 8:24 a.m. and quickly removed the baby, the video shows.

The Police Department said it was releasing Trinidad’s photo and the video to bring awareness to California’s safe surrender law, which allows any newborn under 72 hours old to be surrendered without criminal charges. In Los Angeles County, newborns may be surrendered at any hospital or fire station.

"We've delivered babies in cars and restrooms at home, but it's all part of the job," he said. "It's one of the most positive parts of our job."

When she entered the business, Vargas said, the mother was "screaming real bad, `I'm in labor. I'm going to have it right now.' My manager said, `What should we do?' I said, `It's an emergency and we have to do something.'

"He and I grabbed Subway wrappers and trash bags and rags that we use in here, and put them on the restroom floor so there was sanitation. Everything happened so fast," she added.

After the birth, the 30-year-old Vargas held the mother's hand and assured her the boy was healthy. The mother reacted by "crying a bit but seemed to be OK," she said.

Vargas said though she's "really happy" about how things turned out, she urged her boss to provide training to employees on how to deliver babies.

She didn't know she was pregnant until her baby was born in the toilet

Melissa Surgecoff's son gave her the surprise of her life: She hadn't realized she had been pregnant until after she gave birth to Liam while sitting on the toilet.

She laughed when she told TODAY Parents that looking back now there were clear signs but at the time her son was born, she'd had no idea she was pregnant. She thought she was trying to pass a kidney stone.

Surgecoff, 38, said early in the morning of March 8 she thought she was experiencing intense menstrual pains. As the day progressed and the cramps got faster and more intense, she asked her fiancé, 37-year-old Donnie Campbell, to call 911 and report she was passing a kidney stone.

"The only relief I would get was sitting on the toilet," she said. "So I was in the bathroom, and I . couldn't sit still. I was screaming, I was trying not to be loud like I didn't know what this was."

She said finally at one point she felt something rush out of her.

"I look in the toilet and I still didn't know what it was," she said. "And I thought I basically lost an organ because I didn't know!"

Surgecoff said she stood up and didn't realize what was in the toilet bowl until her fiancé went to look.

"I'm screaming, I'm freaking out, I'm in shock," she recalled. "I don't know what's going on, and Donnie went to the toilet, and he rescued the baby."

Campbell told TODAY Parents that he initially thought the baby may have been feces. He said he knew to clean off the infant based on several TV shows that he'd seen before, so he did so using his sweatshirt. Then Liam started breathing.

"I kept watching his stomach and he kept breathing on his own and then it became more of a celebration," he said. "I stood up and held him close to my heart against my body to keep him warm."

Surgecoff said when EMS arrived at their home, they were still expecting Campbell to be passing a kidney stone, so the baby was a surprise. They all went to the hospital and baby Liam was found to be perfectly healthy, apart from a slight iron deficiency.

Surgecoff said she had always experienced irregular periods and thought she'd just gained weight as a result of the ongoing pandemic and her medication.

"So if you look back on it now, yeah, there are clear-cut signs," she said. "Like my feet were swollen. . My shoulders and upper body were swollen and just like, you know, gaining weight."

Their family was shocked but excited to help after Liam arrived.

"Normal moms have nine months to plan to do whatever, to save and get gifts and buy stuff," Surgecoff said. "Once they found out, they went into super overdrive."

Surgecoff and Campbell, who have been together since 2014, had planned to get married in September 2020. They postponed the wedding due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic but are still planning on tying the knot, now as new parents, on June 18 of this year.

Woman gives birth in Nevada Subway sandwich shop

It was just another day at work for Flora Vargas until a screaming woman burst into her Subway sandwich shop in Nevada on Friday and announced she was in labor.

RENO, Nev. — It was just another day at work for Flora Vargas until a screaming woman burst into her Subway sandwich shop in Nevada on Friday and announced she was in labor.

After the pregnant woman raced for the women&rsquos restroom, assistant manager Vargas and her boss sprang into action, placing sandwich wrappers and trash bags on the floor for sanitation.

With Vargas&rsquo help, the mother gave birth on the restroom floor in Minden, 40 miles south of Reno, a couple minutes later.

&ldquoIt was a boy. A beautiful boy,&rdquo Vargas told The Associated Press. &ldquoHe didn&rsquot cry when he came out. Then he cried, and I breathed easier knowing he was alive.&rdquo

No customers were in the restaurant at the time of the 9:30 a.m. birth, but the restaurant was open. The only employees inside were Vargas and the manager.

Vargas helped calm down the mother and get her on the restroom floor, she said, and it was &ldquoa blessing&rdquo that paramedics from the East Fork Fire and Paramedic District arrived in time to assist in the delivery.

&ldquoThe head of the baby was already out when she went to the floor,&rdquo Vargas said. &ldquoThe baby came out really, really fast. Fortunately, the emergency service people got here really fast.&rdquo

Paramedics transported the mother and child to Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center, where hospital spokesman Jon Tyler said he could only disclose that both are healthy. Their names were not released.

Vargas said the mother told her that she was 21 and had three other children. The mother was accompanied by a sister at the time, she added.

East Fork Battalion Chief Ron Haskins said paramedics have delivered babies in odd places, but it&rsquos the first birth on a restaurant restroom floor that he can recall during his 30 years with the district.

&ldquoWe&rsquove delivered babies in cars and restrooms at home, but it&rsquos all part of the job,&rdquo he said. &ldquoIt&rsquos one of the most positive parts of our job.&rdquo

When she entered the business, Vargas said, the mother was &ldquoscreaming real bad, `I&rsquom in labor. I&rsquom going to have it right now.&rsquo My manager said, `What should we do?&rsquo I said, `It&rsquos an emergency and we have to do something.&rsquo

&ldquoHe and I grabbed Subway wrappers and trash bags and rags that we use in here, and put them on the restroom floor so there was sanitation. Everything happened so fast,&rdquo she added.

After the birth, the 30-year-old Vargas held the mother&rsquos hand and assured her the boy was healthy. The mother reacted by &ldquocrying a bit but seemed to be OK,&rdquo she said.

Vargas said though she&rsquos &ldquoreally happy&rdquo about how things turned out, she urged her boss to provide training to employees on how to deliver babies.

Disgusting woman. I hope this baby grows up to become president.

From everything I've seen, read, and heard about childbirth from movies, TV, conversations with people, etc. I get the impression that it is an extremely painful and, apparently, quite lengthy process.

So how is it that a woman can shuffle into a bathroom, pop out a kid, and walk out without ANYONE noticing? Obviously, this isn't the first time something like this has happened.

Seriously, do women and pop culture overly dramatize childbirth or something? Seems like it always involves loud grunting, screaming, frantic requests for pain medication, etc.
