Woman gives birth inside Walmart in Roswell

By The Associated Press
ROSWELL, Ga. (AP) Labor Day came early for a Roswell woman who gave birth inside a Walmart north of Atlanta. <br /> <br /> Authorities say the baby made its arrival shortly after 5 a.m. Tuesday in the Walmart Supercenter on Mansell Road in Roswell. <br /> <br /> Ken Simpson, regional director for the Rural/Metro ambulance company, says the woman delivered her baby inside the store before paramedics could arrive. <br /> <br /> The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the new mother and her baby were taken to Northside Hospital for evaluation. <br /> <br /> Walmart officials did not immediately return the Atlanta newspaper's call for comment late Tuesday. <br /> <br /> The woman's name wasn't released, and it wasn't immediately known whether she was a customer or an employee. <br /> <br /> Walmart Supercenter No. 1578 is about 20 miles north of downtown Atlanta. <br />
