NC baby beats ambulance, so 6-year-old helps birth

FUQUAY-VARINA, N.C. — A North Carolina 6-year-old said she was acting like a big girl as she helped her mother deliver a baby at home.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday that Briana Johnson of Fuquay-Varina ( Few-KWAY Vuh-REE-nah) gave birth on her bedroom floor with only help from her young daughter Diyana as an ambulance raced to the scene.

Johnson said she felt contractions early Wednesday. Her water broke as she stepped out of bed, so she called her father and then an ambulance.

The 25-year-old nurse knew help would arrive too late, so she told her first-grade daughter to fetch towels and then open the door for the rescue squad.

Diyana says she controlled an impulse to cry while watching her mother in pain as five-pound Madisyn was born.

Rare shrimp found off NC coast

In a discussion about oxymorons, George Carlin pointed to the term jumbo shrimp as a good example. A shrimp found by Southport fisherman Royce Potter Monday would make the late comedian proud.

The shrimp is an Asian black tiger shrimp, and he measures in at almost ten inches. That type of shrimp is rare off our coast. So rare in fact, Potter had to notify the Division of Marine Fisheries when he caught him, and the state may want to keep him as a specimen. Until then, the shrimp is on ice.

Potter said he was pretty surprised when he reeled in the net. “It looked like a baby lobster. So we didn’t know what it was at first,” he said. “Just one little piece of the tail was sticking up out of the other shrimp.”
