September 28, 2000
PERTH A woman rushed to hospital on her birthday with suspected severe flu was stunned when she gave birth to a healthy son, AFP said. Lyndsey Favell, 23, said here Wednesday she had no idea she was pregnant when she went into Joondalup hospital, north of the city, with abdominal cramps Monday. "The baby arrived within minutes of my reaching the hospital," she said. "It all happened in a public toilet in the emergency department.
It was a huge shock." Her dumbfounded partner, Stacey Johnston, had driven her to the hospital after her supposed illness had appeared to become more serious.
