EMS rushed to a Calgary grocery store on Wednesday morning for reports of a woman going into labour – but said the baby was born before they arrived.

Alberta Health Services confirmed paramedics were called to the Sobeys in the community of McKenzie Towne at around 8 a.m.

The mother was in a vehicle in the parking lot, and was assisted in the delivery of her child by a family member.

When they arrived, EMS provided basic care to mom and baby. Spokesperson Adam Loria said both were in good health but were transported to hospital for precautionary reasons.
