ROSWELL, Ga. — Labor Day came early for a Roswell woman who gave birth inside a Wal-Mart near Atlanta.

Authorities say the baby made its arrival shortly after 5 a.m. Tuesday in the Wal-Mart Supercenter on Mansell Road in Roswell.

Ken Simpson, regional director for the Rural/Metro ambulance company, says the woman delivered her baby inside the store before paramedics could arrive.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the new mother and her baby were taken to Northside Hospital for evaluation.

Wal-Mart officials did not immediately return the Atlanta newspaper’s call for comment.

The woman’s name wasn’t released, and it wasn’t immediately known whether she was a customer or an employee.

Wal-Mart Supercenter No. 1578 is about 20 miles north of downtown Atlanta.

I hope it's a boy also. If

I hope it's a boy also. If it's a girl she's destined to be at least 75 pounds overweight and wear short shirts and halter tops.

How much did it cost

to check him out of the store? And was that taxable or non-taxable?

Only in Georgia

Normally, I would have thought it was a hoax. You can't make this stuff up.

I hope it's a Girl. They can name her (made in) China.

'Buy American Made'. We haven't heard if she was born to an American citizen, a legal alien, or an illegal alien.
