A woman on Friday walked away from a Colorado Springs Starbucks carrying not coffee, but a newborn.

The 42-year-old, whose name was not released, gave birth about noon Friday in the bathroom of Starbucks, 3104 Colorado Ave., according to police Sgt. Mark Stevens.

She told no one.

A person noticed blood in the bathroom, Stevens said. Someone also followed the woman out of the store, directing paramedics to her, said Lt. James Eddy, Colorado Springs Fire Department spokesman.

When paramedics arrived, she was walking west on Colorado Avenue.

The mother and the baby were in good condition when taken to Memorial Hospital, Stevens said.
