Baby born in backseat of cab in Greenpoint

A Brooklyn woman gave birth to a baby girl in the backseat of a livery cab this week, and the video of the delivery filmed by her husband is getting thousands of views on YouTube.

Beka Economopoulos says she and her husband Jason were hosting an Occupy Wall Street meeting at their home when she went into labor. They called a cab to get her to the hospital, but there was no time. An ambulance was called and paramedics assisted in the delivery of her daughter, who the couple named Mila Amie.

In a state of frenzy, the new parents weren't sure which livery cab company they called, but Economopoulos says they plan to find out so they can thank the driver personally, because he was very helpful to them.
