City Hall as Maternity Ward

Mayor Hickenlooper of Denver is always working to meet his people’s needs.  Today, the hallway outside his office became a maternity ward, with a baby delivered at 8:53 a.m. according to the Rocky Mountain News.  Sheriff’s deputies attended the birth.

The deputies are unlikely to receive the same compensation that a physician or midwife would normally receive under those circumstances.  The baby may want to consider a future in local government.
