STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLO. (AP) _ A Steamboat Springs mom and
newborn son are doing fine after she delivered him by herself in a
car outside a hospital.

Twenty-eight-year-old Samantha Youngs was being driven by her
mother to the hospital early Monday, but the labor went faster than
either expected. By the time Youngs' mother could alert staff at
the Yampa Valley Medical Center, Youngs had given birth in the
front seat of the Subaru parked outside the hospital.

Youngs told the Steamboat Pilot & Today that the birth of her
second son was much shorter than for her first child. The boy
weighed 6 pounds, 13 ounces, and mom and baby are back home after
two days in the hospital.
