Teen Gives Birth In Nightclub And Baby Gets 'Free Entry For Life'
It probably wasn't how she imagined she'd meet her newborn, but a pregnant 19-year-old went to a nightclub and ended up actually giving birth in the middle of the dancefloor.
Taking place at the O'Club in the French city of Toulouse, the as-yet unnamed woman went into labour on Monday morning at 5.30am.
As reported by local media, the club's staff helped the lady to give birth and stay calm in what could have been a pretty dangerous situation.
Speaking to La Depeche, club manager Marie-Helene said: "It was 5.30am, the club was just closing, There wasn't a lot of people left in the place and one of my members of staff cam over to me and said 'it's urgent'.
"I could see that the woman was about to give birth. But we had to act quickly. A member of staff called the emergency medical line who talked us through what we had to do.
"The young woman didn't seem too panicked but she was worried. Then the baby came out."
"It's one of the more bizarre closings we've had. My team worked together. We all cried. The positive thing to come out of all of this is that none of us panicked and weren't scared. Anyway, we got it done."

You may be wondering what exactly a heavily pregnant woman was doing a nightclub at 5am.
Marie-Helene explained: "One of her [the young woman's] friends suggested coming to O'Club to cheer her up because she was having some personal problems. She wasn't drinking."
"She was one of the last people to leave because she couldn't walk."
This is presumably because the poor girl was in labour.
The club then thought it was only fair that given it was his legal place of birth, that the baby gets free entry to the O'Club for life - presumably for when it's old enough to at least walk.
The staff at the club have obviously become attached to the mother and her baby, having probably been the first faces her baby saw when it entered the world. They are reportedly both healthy and doing well.
The manager added: "We hope she keeps us updated with how everything goes."
