Service dog unexpectedly gives birth at Florida airport

Yellow lab gives birth to eight puppies

Apart from the fire department, a professional nurse who was present at the airport also helped out, although she had to leave in the middle of the delivery because her flight was about to take off.

The 2-year-old lab went into labor while her owner was waiting to board a flight to Philadelphia.

Tampa Fire Rescue shared the sweet moments over social media.

Ellie - short for Eleanor Rigby - gave birth to seven boys and one girl.

It was hard to control the father of the puppies during the delivery.

Down on the ground right next to seating at one of the gates, the miracle of life unfolded before everyone's eyes.

Dozens of travelers at the airport were gathered around watching the delivery. They were aware that Ellie was pregnant, but didn't realize how far along she was.

Both Eleanor Rigby and Golden Nugget are service dogs to Van Atter, who suffers from mobility and pain issues, an airport spokeswoman told the publication.

"Tampa paramedics do it all!" Congratulations to Ellie, Nugget and their family! "Paramedics Larry Glanton and Lt Natalie Brown teamed up to deliver the eight puppies".
