Woman gives birth on fishing trip

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — Lorraina Fortine didn’t need any bait to catch this one. She’s returning from a weekend fishing trip with a new baby. She had been scheduled for a C-section delivery yesterday. But her doc cleared her to go on a family fishing trip to Kansas’ Cheney Lake for the weekend. Fortine tells KWCH-TV she woke up Saturday morning in labor and gave birth within minutes. She also has a three-year-old son. The Fortines have picked an appropriate name for their new daughter, Summer.
