Baby makes surprise delivery in family's toilet

Posted: Updated:

(WOWT) Lareatha Rahn calls her newborn son Malikai her "miracle baby" after he survived a surprise delivery at home in the family's toilet.

"For him to have fallen into the toilet and nothing to happen to him, it's just a blessing. It really is," she says.

Late Saturday night, two days past her due date, Rahn felt sudden, intense pressure in her abdomen as she went to use the restroom.

As Rahn pushed, she called 9-1-1 and then asked her 11 year-old daughter Lamya for help.
