Mother names son Uber after his birth in a cab

NEW DELHI (REUTERS) - This baby boy will have a story to tell his whole life. He was named Uber, after being born in a cab operated by the company.

His mother, Babli, says she requested an Uber ride to a hospital after repeated attempts to reach an ambulance.

She says she shared the cab with two other women, but had to stop along the way to deliver the baby inside the cab.

"I jokingly said, the number of passengers has increased in my car. Everyone was smiling but the patient was crying. She was in pain. I restarted the car and rushed towards the hospital." said driver Shahnawaz Khan, who helped with the delivery.

The proud mother says her baby boy will officially be named Uber at a ceremony later.
