YouTube, Google Search Help Man Deliver Baby

How does a U.K. man deliver a baby in this age of high technology and search engines? Just point your browser to the “How to Have a Baby in a Car” YouTube video. Poof. Delivered.

Reports the BBC:

Marc Stephens watched the videos as a precaution when his wife Jo started to feel some discomfort.

Four hours later, his wife went into labour and started giving birth before an ambulance could arrive at their home in Redruth. “I Googled how to deliver a baby, watched a few videos and basically swotted up,” Mr Stephens told the BBC.

That said, don’t let Stephens fool you. He’s a natural. “This is our fourth child now and while for our first I spent most of the time at my wife’s head, now I’m not afraid to go down to the business end.”

Truly, a heart-warming story in an age that sees despicable baby-related smartphone apps being approved for the general populace without missing a beat. [BBC News via Google Blogoscoped]
