A former Olympic runner, who was eight months pregnant, died suddenly Wednesday at a restaurant in Hamden, Conn. Emergency personnel were able to safely deliver her baby at a nearby hospital.
Meskerem Legesse, 26, was getting takeout food from a Chinese restaurant with her 2-year-old son when she suddenly collapsed and died.
"Anytime you're pregnant, it's like you're jogging when you're walking or you're sprinting when you're jogging," said Metzl. "It's just more strain."
