Baby born at Tim Hortons

Two Tim Hortons’ employees helped deliver a baby girl in a washroom at one of the chain’s shops on Tuesday.

Coached by a 911 operator, Judy Glenn and manager Aaron Hayes helped Shireen Anderson give birth to Azauria, in the restroom of the Tim Hortons shop where they work in Windsor Ont. at around 11 a.m. on Tuesday.

From the CBC:

Hayes said Anderson was experiencing contractions when she arrived alone. He offered her a chair. Instead, she ran to the washroom screaming, he said.

Hayes and fellow employee Judy Glenn followed her and called 911.

The two employees laid out towels for Anderson, who gave birth with the help of Glenn and Hayes, who wiped the baby’s face and got her breathing.

“There wasn’t much time to be scared when that baby was coming out,” Hayes said. “The baby was coming out and we can’t wait for anybody.”
