Two women have given birth to healthy babies in the car park of the same Burger King restaurant on consecutive days.

Police were called to the restaurant in New Jersey at 7.24pm on Friday after reports that a woman was going into labour.

Officers in Denville said the parents were on their way to hospital but got stuck in traffic and had to pull over into the venue’s car park just off Route 80.

Officers and emergency personnel arrived on the scene and aided the woman to deliver a baby boy.

The following night, the same patrol officers went back to the restaurant after another report of a woman going into labour.

Authorities said that couple were on their way to hospital when the woman started undergoing major contractions.

The call came into Denville police at 8.24pm.

Officers helped the couple deliver a son in their vehicle in the car park of the restaurant.

Firefighter Shannon Covert told CBS News about the first birth, saying: “Within a few minutes, the baby was out.

“We got her into the ambulance and handed the baby to her and let her hold him the whole way to the hospital, so she was happy about that.”

His colleague Rich Yobs, talking about the following night, said: “We look at our pagers and go: ‘This is a joke. This can’t be – two nights in a row, the same exact thing.’

“Sure enough, we get down there and it is. And… that one came even quicker.”

After the first birth, Denville police tweeted: “Our @denvillepd officers and Denville Fire members delivered a baby in the Burger King Parking lot this evening. Great Job!”
