A quick-thinking Wendy's employee in Fort Wayne, Indiana, came to the rescue Friday when a pregnant customer went into labor in the restaurant parking lot. Around 1:40 p.m. a man came into the restaurant requesting a phone to call 911, restaurant manager Barbara Ulmor tells WANE. The man's niece had gone into labor and the baby was coming fast. "He said he didn't know what to do," Ulmor says.

Ulmor immediately called on employee Shanetta Stewart, a mother of six kids, for help. "At first I thought it was a joke," Stewart says. "That was until I saw people running out the door. When I got out there, I saw a woman in a lot of pain." While another employee, Camaria Jones, ran for towels and gloves, Stewart leapt into action coaching the mother through the delivery, reports The News-Sentinel. By the time an ambulance arrived, the baby girl was safely delivered. Watch the full report below:

Fast food chains often play host to unusual incidents. Last year, pranksters participating in a "smack cam" trend assaulted an unsuspecting Wendy's employee on camera.
