A woman gave birth today in a downtown courthouse. A woman went into labor today at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse at 111 N Hill St. in downtown Los Angeles at about 11:40 a.m., CBS LA reports. The woman, who was two days overdue, gave birth before paramedics were able to arrive. Deputies and court employers provided paper towels and a few cardboard boxes for privacy. Bystanders cheered.

The mother and her baby son are fine, according to a tweet from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department's Special Enforcement Bureau.
