Child not born in car, but by midwife

WICHITA — Reports of a baby born in the back seat of a car this afternoon turned out to be premature.

Dispatchers said the mother apparently was in labor in a car earlier this afternoon but the baby was delivered by a midwife.

The birth was called in to 911 at 12:28 p.m. from the intersection of Pawnee and Roseberry, near Planeview, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said.

Emergency personnel could not find the car at that location, however.
