WEST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut baby has arrived with a splash, right into a toilet bowl.
The baby's father, David Davis, tells WVIT-TV (http://bit.ly/1mZ4HlM ) that he was forced to deliver the newborn in the bathroom of his West Haven home Friday morning after his wife, Lillie, went into labor.
He says the baby slipped through his hands during the delivery, but luckily went into the water. He says she began crying and it was the best sound he'd ever heard.
Davis says the couple had gone to a hospital earlier in that morning, but had been sent home after it was determined his wife was not ready to give birth.
She began feeling strong labor pains a few hours later. Livia weighed in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces — soaking wet.
