Illinois baby born at gas station

CICERO, Ill. -- Most babies are born in a hospital but one Illinois baby was born in a van at a gas station.

His mom waited a little too long to leave for the hospital so they called 9-1-1 and police directed them to the gas station.

Police were at the gas station from an earlier accident.

Neither of the parents panicked, this was their second child.

"It really is to me one of the most natural things. It's instinct. I was just going on instinct," said Kathryn Engel, mother.

Little Aiden is now a few weeks old and doing well. The family now has quite the story to tell about the new bundle of joy in their life.
