Colorado teacher gives birth on sidewalk outside school


A teacher in Denver gave birth to a baby girl on the sidewalk outside her school.

Lindsay Agbalokwu was two weeks away from her due date last Tuesday morning so she brushed off a possible contraction and headed to school.

But the sixth-grade reading teacher at DSST: Conservatory Green realized shortly into her day that her baby wouldn’t be tardy in the slightest.

“Then all of a sudden, it was just so much pressure and pain, I was like, ‘I think she’s coming now! I think we need to just call 911,’” Agbalokwu told ABC 7 Denver.

Her co-workers snapped into action. Seventh grade reading teacher Marissa Kast put down a sleeping bag as principal Natalie Lewis and dean of students Chris Earls prepared to deliver the baby.

Firefighters arrived at the last minute to finish the delivery in a matter of moments.

Baby Zara clocked in at a healthy eight pounds and six ounces.

“When she was ready, she just said, ‘Boom. I’m coming out,’” said Agbalokwu. “I think it will be indicative of her personality to come. That she will be a firecracker. She’s going to do great things.”
