A Colorado woman has given birth in an Arkansas Denny’s assisted by two truck drivers, who saved the baby’s life when he was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck.
Kaycee Triana was two weeks overdue when she went into labor Saturday morning.
She jumped into the car with her sister, who stopped by the Denny’s where their mother works to pick her up on the way to the hospital. Minutes later, Triana gave birth on the floor.
Thanksgiving miracle: Kaycee Triana’s baby boy was born within minutes of her arriving at an Arkansas Denny’s
Overdue: Triana was two weeks past her due date when her son Andrew decided he was coming – and fast
Kaycee Triana was visiting her family in Arkansas for Thanksgiving when she went into labor.
She and her sister went to Denny’s to pick up their mother at her place of work. Only Suzanne Nettles had already left for the hospital, where she assumed she’d meet her daughters.
‘Pretty much as soon as she walked in, she had a baby,’ Nettles told NBC6.
‘I assumed they went to the hospital, but they went to Denny’s.’
Triana, who has another son, Chris, and her sister entered the restaurant and realized their mother wasn’t there – but by then it was too late.
‘She was screaming and saying, “I think the baby’s coming! I think the baby’s coming,”‘ said Denny’s employee Linda McClure.

Bouncing boy: Andrew was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck, but two truck drivers saved his life
‘I was trying to get towels, whatever they needed.’
Triana says that as soon as she entered Denny’s she realized she wasn’t going to make it to the hospital.
‘I just pushed one more time and the head came out and I had to drop my pants so somebody would realize: it’s here,’ Triana told NBC6.
Two truck drivers ran to Triana’s aid as she labored.
‘Two truckers came over, put her on the carpet and helped her get the baby out,’ said McClure.
Triana told NBC6 that the truckdrivers remained calm and ‘knew what to do’ after her big baby boy was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck.

‘I’m still trying to absorb it all, this whole situation,’ Nettles said. ‘They saved my grand-baby’s life.’
The 10lb 4oz baby, named Andrew, is healthy and will shortly be released from Christus St Michael Hospital.
One of the truck drivers who helped deliver Andrew has been in contact with Kaycee Triana at hospital.
