Elkhart woman gives birth on trolley

ELKHART, Ind. -- An Elkhart mom got a very special holiday delivery Tuesday in the most unexpected place. She gave birth to a baby girl on a trolley in front of the Goshen courthouse.

The little bundle of joy is named Autumn Dawn.

Skylla Hurt mom was supposed to get induced for early labor Wednesday because the baby is so small, but she came a day early.

“I was heading to the bus station or trolley station and I was calling my OB doctor to let them know I was having labor, contractions really bad. And when I got on the trolley it became faster and harder and then we got  to the courthouse - it came out,” said Hurt.

Hurt is doing well and is resting up with her daughter and boyfriend by her side.
