Woman Names Baby Born During Uber Trip "Uber"
Last week, a woman named Babli from Devli in south Delhi gave birth to a baby boy in an unconventional place -- the back of an Uber cab. Even more unconventional is what the baby was named.

As Babli was going into labor, she and friends attempted to call an ambulance to transport her to the hospital with no luck. With no other options available, the group decided to call an Uber to take Babli to the hospital. That's when Uber driver Shahnavaz showed up.

"I had asked them to call an ambulance, but the women said that they couldn't get one," Shahnawaz told Times of India. Shahnawaz began driving Babli to Safdarjung Hospital, but before he knew it, he had to stop.

"The woman was writhing in pain and her friends did not know what to do," he said. So Shahnawaz jumped into action. "I pulled out the towels from the seats and poured some drinking water into a bowl. The child was born within minutes and I was really happy to see that he was responding," he said. Thanks to Shahnawaz, Babli gave birth to a healthy baby boy. The Uber driver turned hero describes the birth of the baby as one of the happiest moments of his life. After the ordeal, Babli gave the responsibility of naming her child to Shahnavaz, and he cleverly decided to name the baby "Uber" after the company that brought them together that day.

Take a look into the company Shahnawaz named Babli's son after:
