55 years ago in Geelong, I picked up a young couple, who needed to be taken straight to the hospital. The woman was heavily pregnant and it looked like the birth was imminent.
A few minutes into the trip, they asked me to pull over – to my surprise, the birth was already happening in the back seat of my cab! This baby was in a rush to arrive.
I was so glad that the mother was ok and the baby was delivered safely, it took me, however, months to get over the shock!
I often wonder if there someone out there who proudly tells their version of this story on their birthday – what a way to start your life!
