Thumbs up Grandma delivers baby, Thanksgiving dinner

Mass. woman raced to save turkey after daughter gave birth 2 weeks early

BOSTON - A Boston woman has succeeded at one of the all-time great Thanksgiving Day juggling acts: She cooked the turkey while helping deliver her baby granddaughter.

Patricia McCalop was in the middle of preparing the meal when her daughter suddenly went into labor two weeks early.

McCalop called 911, and a dispatcher talked her through the delivery and helped her confirm that the baby girl was breathing.

Paramedics arrived shortly afterward and took Africa McCalop and her newborn to the hospital. They are both in good health.

Didnít want turkey to burn
Patricia McCalop said she kept running between the kitchen and her daughter in labor because she didn't want the turkey to burn while helping her child deliver the baby.

"I'm like, 'What are you doing with the turkey? We got the baby,'" Africa McCalop told the Boston Herald. "She didnít know what to do. Sheís like, 'I got to go get the turkey baster.' Iím like, 'For what?'"

The infant weighed six pounds.
