HANOVER, Mass. — A pregnant mother racing to the hospital early Friday morning delivered her baby in the Hanover Mall parking lot instead when it became clear they weren’t going to make it in time.

Chris and Samantha Long of Pembroke were on the way to Norwood Hospital when they realized that they were out of time. They pulled into the mall parking lot to call 911, the Patriot Ledger reported.

Dispatcher Michael Mahoney, a certified paramedic, gave the anxious father instructions by phone while another dispatcher, Leah Ardini, directed police and firefighters to the mall.

They found the freshly delivered baby boy resting comfortably with his mother in a car parked in front of a Walmart store around 2:45 a.m.

“The baby was on his own schedule, however, and both dispatchers were pleasantly surprised to hear dad declare, almost immediately, that he had a son,” Deputy Fire Chief Barbara Stone said in an email.

Paramedics cut the umbilical cord, cleaned and swaddled the baby, and brought Long and the baby to South Shore Hospital in Weymouth.
