(Newser) – Not every Burger King delivers—but that didn't stop two women from having their babies on back-to-back days in the parking lot of the same Burger King restaurant in New Jersey. Denville police say they were called to the restaurant at 7:24pm Friday for a woman going into labor, the AP reports. They say the parents were on the way to the hospital but got stuck in traffic and had to pull over. The Daily Record reports the traffic was from a fatal car accident in Roxbury. Officers and emergency responders helped the woman deliver a healthy son. "Our @denvillepd officers and Denville Fire members delivered a baby in the Burger King Parking lot this evening. Great Job!," Denville Police noted on Twitter later that night.

Almost exactly 25 hours later, the same patrol officers went back to the restaurant for a report of another woman going into labor. Authorities say the couple was heading to the hospital when the woman started experiencing severe contractions. Officers helped deliver another baby boy in the couple's vehicle. "The police officers are quite simply just happy that they could be of assistance to both of the families," Capt. Keith Partin tells the Record, which notes some BK night-shift workers were present for both births. (Read more Burger King stories.)
