CLAIRTON, Pa. » A woman says she delivered her own baby while her mother was driving her to a Pittsburgh hospital.

Heather Payo tells WPXI-TV that her mother was driving from Clairton to Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC in Pittsburgh on Tuesday when Payo realized she wasn't going to arrive in time.

Payo says she ripped of her pants and delivered the baby, Jessica Rose, by reclining the front passenger seat. Heather Payo and her mother, Robin Payo, who was driving, wrapped the baby in a flannel shirt before reaching the hospital.

Robin Payo says, "We got to ER and a girl came out and said, 'Oh, someone's having a baby' and I said, 'No, we had a baby.'"
