A woman walked inside the Waffle House restaurant in Antioch just hours after Sunday's shooting holding a newborn baby.

She told a division manager for the chain that she'd just given birth in the parking lot, The Tennessean reported.

The manager told the paper the woman told him she'd been involved in a minor traffic accident and the baby just couldn't wait

The manager was able to clear the baby's airway and emergency responders took them both mom and baby to the hospital.

The Tennessean tried finding out the condition of both, but privacy laws prevent the hospital from releasing patient information.
