Baby born in bathroom at Seattle theater during concert

Associated Press

SEATTLE – Authorities say a concert-goer gave birth to a baby girl in a bathroom stall at the Neptune Theater in Seattle.

News outlets reported the infant was born around 9:20 p.m. Wednesday during a concert by reggae singer Damian Marley, who is the son of late reggae icon Bob Marley.

The Seattle Fire Department says the baby arrived shortly before firefighters did and that the woman and baby were taken to a local hospital, both in stable condition.

Fire spokeswoman Kristin Tinsley described the baby’s condition as good.

The sister of the woman giving birth told KOMO-TV that she was in the bathroom and ready to help but by the time she had taken off her rings, the baby was in the mother’s arms.
