Dad Delivers Baby Thanks to a Google How-To

While this isn't the first time a frantic father has brought new life into the world with the Web's help, a baby is always cause for celebration, especially from the benevolent hands of Google.

Leroy Smith, from Leytonstone, East London, was at his wit's end when wife Emma started experiencing contractions after their midwife left for the day. Since they wanted a home birth, the 29-year-old security guard did what any clueless dad with a smartphone might do: Google for step-by-step instructions on how to deliver a baby at home, which he eventually found on wikiHow.

"The BlackBerry told me that when I saw the head, I had to support it," Smith told The Sun. "And when the baby actually came out, I had to place her on Emma's chest, cover them both with a blanket and make sure they were both comfortable and relaxed." Five minutes after the delivery, the midwife arrived to find the healthy, 6 pounds, 11 ounces Mahalia Merita Angela Smith waiting for her.

As for Mom? Though Emma had complained about Leroy's constant BlackBerry-ing, she promised never to gripe again. [From: The Sun]
