A Woman in California Delivered Her Baby at a Gas Station . . . and Named it "Shell"
This kid is never going to forget where he was born. And the kids who relentlessly mock him for the next 18 years won't forget either. Around 6:30 P.M. on Friday, 27-year-old Kimberly Thomas of Oakland, California was rushing to the hospital to deliver a baby. Her boyfriend was driving, but the baby couldn't wait.
As they were driving through a neighborhood called Knowland Park, the baby started coming out, so Kimberly's boyfriend pulled into a Shell gas station. And right there, in the parking lot, Kimberly gave birth. Fortunately for her, three police officers were at the station and ran over to help. And one of them was a former nursing assistant.
Kimberly gave birth to a healthy baby boy, and named him, Knowland Shell. Because, yeah, she gave birth to him at a Shell station in Knowland Park.
