It is a rare situation in which, a news presenter while reading the news becomes a headline herself. Accidentally, Victoria Fritz, a news presenter, reporter and business correspondent at BBC News, became a perfect example of such a situation.
On 15 November 2016, she was reading the news as usual for BBC. Suddenly, her labor pain started, which was supposed to happen five weeks later i.e. her delivery date was on the month of December.
She was urgently rushed to the St Mary's Hospital, Manchester by the BBC Breakfast team and Sally Nugent, her news reading partner at the moment.
As her husband Dan got stuck in the traffic, and could not reach the hospital in such an emergency situation, Sally Nugent accompanied Victoria to the hospital and remained there till the arrival of Victoria's husband.
Finally, Victoria gave birth to a baby boy. Due to premature birth, her son developed breathing problems and was shifted to dependency unit for two weeks. After some weeks, he revived to normal health.
