Nyree Thompson, 32, from Atlantic City, was at the Resorts Atlantic City Casino. She was eight months pregnant at the time, and had some pains which she thought was gas. She went to the bathroom around 9.30 am, only to realise she was about to give birth.
Nyree informed the security guard, and was subsequently helped by four other security guards until paramedics arrived. She gave birth on the casino floor to a baby boy weighing less than five pounds. The baby was wrapped in a jacket, and both were taken to hospital. Nyree has named the baby Qualeem. They are both doing well.
The Resorts Vice President of Operations, Steve Callender, who has worked at Resorts since 1978 said “This is the first birth for the casino as far as I know, we’ve had people die here, but we've never had people born here before”
