Pregnant woman unable to cross street to hospital because of Obama motorcade

A pregnant woman could not cross a Los Angeles street Wednesday afternoon to get to a hospital because the road was closed for President Barack Obama's motorcade, NBC4 reports.

However, the woman did not tell police at the street closure outside Cedars-Sinai Medical Center that she was in labor, said Los Angeles police spokesman Officer Bruce Borihanh.

Unable to get across the street, the woman sat at a bus bench with her spouse and two nurses, who also were waiting to cross. According to conservative blog The Blaze, the woman had to wait 30 minutes for the motorcade to pass by.

Officers called for an ambulance as a precaution, but by the time it arrived, the motorcade had passed and she had crossed the street and entered the hospital to give birth, Borihanh said.

KNBC reporter Robert Kovacik, who posted a video of the woman waiting on his Instagram account, described the woman as being in labor.

"Woman in labor on bench as motorcade passes; not allowed to cross street to get to #CedarsSinai," Kovacik wrote.

A Secret Service spokesman said in the event of a medical emergency, the Secret Service has a policy of facilitating ambulances "in the fastest and safest way possible."

The Secret Service KNBC that the incident is under investigation by the LAPD.

Dad's kickstarter revolutionizing water balloon fights

Water balloon fights are fun, but they can take too long to fill up. A popular Kickstarter campaign wants to help you take those summer splashfests to the next level.

Josh Malone, a Texas father with eight children (and all-around genius) has created Bunch O Balloons, a single-use device that allows you to fill up 37 balloons in about 20 seconds.

"This system makes it easy for kids of all ages to prepare 100 water balloons in just ONE minute, giving you enough water balloon ammo for any battle," the Kickstarter page reads.

All you do is attach the Bunch O Balloons to a hose and turn the water on. Hold the hose over a bucket and the balloons fill up in seconds.

Then with a little shake, the balloons all come loose. The best part is that they are automatically TIED!

Malone's campaign goal was $10,000, which he easily surpassed.
