PALM BAY, Fla., July 5 (UPI) -- A Florida couple said their infant son was born in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven store when they were unable to reach the hospital in time.

Chad and Tye Malley said the contractions began at 8:45 p.m. June 23 and they were on their way to the hospital when Tye told her husband to pull over and he delivered his son in the parking lot of the Palm Bay convenience store at 10 p.m., the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported Thursday.

"We're both doing great. No problems at all," Tye Malley said Wednesday of herself and her newborn son, Cais, who was born at 9 pounds, 10 ounces.

She said she and the baby were taken to the Holmes Regional Medical Center and released after two days.

The couple also have a 6-year-old son and a 2-year-old daughter.
