Baby born outside Michigan's 'Big House'

Paula Tutman, WDIV-TV

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WDIV) - A story about the best catch at the University of Michigan football stadium known affectionately as The Big House this year, and this has nothing to do with football.

This has to do with very nervous parents-to-be and their bouncing bundle of joy who made an unforgettable entrance.

Less than 15 minutes of hard labor. Dominika Wozniak and husband David had to make a mad dash.

The baby was coming, ready or not.

"We only made it about two blocks to the big house parking lot when we were stuck on the red light and I'm like, 'You have to call 911.'"

David is a continuing doctor - but the wrong kind of doctor. He teaches statistics at Eastern Michigan University. And he was deep in Wolverine country.

"She was right over the top and facing backwards. All of a sudden, the kid appears and then as she came up, splashed everywhere," said David Wozniak.

Naomi was born, but there was drama.

"You see a purple head, not breathing, and she asks, what do I do now? Well, you have to finish it now. So she finished pushing," David said.

"There was nothing I could do. I couldn't push her back because your body is like, she's coming," Dominika said.  "She was breathing and we looked at each other and at that point, there was really -- we were really panicked until then."

They're all doing fine.

"She was 7 pounds and 5 1/2 ounces and 20.5 inches long," Dominika said.

What a story he has to tell his students when he goes back to school about the statistical improbability of delivering your own baby in a parking lot.
