GOSHEN — A northern Indiana woman gave birth on a city bus with her 4-year-old daughter by her side after suddenly going into labor.

Twenty-two-year-old Skylla Hurt of Elkhart was heading to nearby Goshen on Tuesday when she started feeling cramps and her doctor told her to go to the hospital. She didn't make it before giving birth to a baby girl in the bus aisle.

Hurt tells the South Bend Tribune she was surprised the birth was happening so fast and that her daughter helped her calm down.

Bus driver Paula James tells The Goshen News that she stopped in downtown Goshen to await an ambulance but the baby "just came out."

Hurt and her 5 pounds, 3 ounce daughter named Autumn Dawn went to a hospital in good shape.
