Baby Named Ella for Elevator

Here’s something I haven’t seen before: a baby named after an elevator.

In early July, Melissa Cavanagh of England gave birth to a baby girl in a broken-down elevator, where she had been stuck for 45 minutes along with per partner, Paul Yeomans, and three paramedics.

Emergency care assistant Nigel Goodman, who was part of the ambulance crew trapped in the lift, said: “When it was all over, I remember saying to Melissa and Paul that they should call her Ella, short for elevator – and they have!”

Ella’s middle name, Nicola, is in honor of one of the other paramedics, Nikki Wildman.
