GM rewards Minn. woman who gave birth behind wheel of Cobalt

General Motors today said it would give the Minnesota woman who delivered a baby while driving a Chevy car a year’s supply of diapers.

Amanda McBride went into labor last week as she was on her way to North County Regional Hospital, the Bemidji Pioneer reported.

She was driving a red 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt.

Joseph Phillips, the expectant father, was riding shotgun because he suffers from seizures.

“She yelled at me to grab the wheel,” Phillips told the newspaper.

He did. And she pulled down her pants. “And then the baby just came right out,” the woman was quoted as saying. “I was just sitting on the seat and he just slid out. It really wasn’t bad at all.”

She held the baby, turned the heat up in the car and allowed Phillips to steer them to the hospital where everyone arrived safely.

Chevy announced it is giving the couple two child safety seats, a stroller, diapers and other baby supplies.

"We knew the Cobalt was designed to deliver its occupants safely, but never did we expect a delivery quite like this,” Margaret Brooks, Chevrolet product marketing director of small cars, said in a statement.

She added: “Unfortunately, there is no section in the Cobalt driver’s manual on ‘How to Change a Diaper,’ but we’re sure they’ll do just fine.”
