Baby born at Lucas Oil Stadium during Sunday’s Indianapolis Colts game



Indianapolis, Indiana – On Sunday, one fan entered Lucas Oil Stadium without a ticket.

The public organization in charge of Lucas Oil Stadium, the Capital Improvement Board, acknowledged in a statement that a baby was born there on Sunday during the Indianapolis Colts vs. Cleveland Browns game.

“We wish the family our warmest congratulations and wishes for good health,” Capital Improvement Board officials said via a prepared statement. “We are excited to be a part of their history.”

“We also want to extend thanks to our partners at IU Health for being prepared for any medical situation. They do a great job at meeting all the needs that come their way, and today was no exception.”

The baby girl is related to Browns’ wide receiver David Bell.

“It’s a blessing,” the Indianapolis native and former Purdue Boilermaker said. “Her whole idea was to try to have the baby before the game, but you know it’s all in God’s time. So, now I have a new niece. So, hopefully, I get to see her when I come back to the city.”

Kareem Butler, Bell’s mother, stated that the kid wasn’t expected for another four days. On the other hand, the mother of the child gave birth while traveling to Lucas Oil Stadium.

“She was due the 26th, but her mom went into labor as we were crossing the street,” Butler said. “So, when they got here, they went to the first aid. By the time they got her back there, the baby was crowning and they delivered her here at the stadium at 1:20”

The Colts’ season record dropped to 3-4 after their 39-38 loss to the Browns on Sunday.
