Woman gives birth at Pasadena school

PASADENA (KHOU)-- A Pasadena mother went to register her son for pre-K at Fisher Elementary School on Thursday, and ended up walking out with two kids.

"At first I was like, oh my God. I can't believe I'm one of those ladies that has baby at one of those weird random places," said Vanessa DeLeon.

Her fourth son, Geovani Ezekiel Deleon just couldn't wait to be born. He came in at 6 pounds and 3 ounces, delivered at Fisher Elementary.

"I walk in there and tell the lady, here is the immunization and the package filled out. Is there anything I'm missing because I have to go now. I'm in labor."

The brand new school nurse Ashleigh Morris was on her second day of her job when she was faced with delivering a baby.

"This is our makeshift labor and delivery room for the day," said Moore. "She layed down right here. She was screaming."

With the help of the principal and school officer, they delivered the baby. Minutes later, little Geovani came into the world. They used a string to cut the umbilical cord.

With no towels or blankets in school, they needed something to wrap the baby in.

"Ashleigh is over there and she is saying I need t-shirts, we are just grabbing them and throwing to her," said Principal Libby Escalante.

"They were trying to keep them warm, but they all did a great job," said DeLeon. "I just want to thank everyone for being there and treating me so kindly."

In the end, Alexis got a spot in pre-K.

"Pre-K is very limited and he was asking me to go to school," said DeLeon. "It's important he goes to school and learns a lot rather than sitting at home watching TV."
