Apparently Chris made a valiant effort to make the woman laugh and calm her down after the "pregnancy drama," as the Daily Mail calls it. As she was heading for the escalator, she 'started to go into labor,' and as one eyewitness put it, "She recognized immediately who he was and he stayed there until paramedics came and took her away."
Seriously? You'd probably have enough time to finish your shopping, go home and shower, change, eat a bowl of cereal and then walk around until contractions got stronger, then head to the hospital. As of press time, there was no word on the mother's or the baby's condition, but I bet we can guess, judging by the way things got started.
And don't you love the headline? "Chris Rock Rescues Pregnant Woman." They make it sound like she was dangling from a 40-story window and he just happened to catch her or something. Since when is spontaneous rupture of membranes an emergency? What, were they afraid she'd decide to set up camp in the mattress department and give birth in the middle of Macy's?
Side note: I bet Chris Rock would make a great doula.
