Baby born in portable toilet, named John

portable toilets

In mid-1995, a 22-year-old woman named Staci Medlar — “who says she didn’t know she was pregnant” — gave birth in a portable toilet while at an antique tractor show in Ankeny, Iowa.

It was a baby boy. What did she and her fiancé decide to name him?


(Though I doubt they named him after his birthplace. It’s likely they would have chosen that name regardless. Still, it is a funny coincidence…)
