WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A Michigan plumber, who makes his living working in bathrooms, has brought a life into the world in one. Thirty-eight-year-old Brian Hines helped his wife, Andrea, deliver their son, the 7 pound, 13 1/2 ounce Daniel Michael Lee Hines, on the bathroom floor of their Oakland County home on Tuesday.
The dad told The Oakland Press of Pontiac they did not rush to a hospital when the contractions began because their first child, Alexander, had taken hours to arrive. Daniel took just seven minutes.
Brian Hines told the Detroit Free Press he recognizes the irony of the story, and says he and his wife will have "fun with that one for a long time.
"Waterford Township emergency dispatcher Joy Nick, who talked him through the birth, told The Oakland Press it was her first over the phone in 22 years.
