    Default 6-Year-Old Helps Mom Give Emergency Birth

    FUQUAY-VARINA — As the ambulance raced to her door, Briana Johnson knew she’d be having her baby on her bedroom floor, assisted by the only helper in the house: her 6-year-old daughter.
    At 3 a.m. Sept. 16, Johnson delivered her own infant while Diyana scampered around fetching towels, trying to be brave as she learned first-hand where babies come from.

    When he got to his daughter, she was holding Madisyn, 51/2 pounds.
