A woman gave birth inside a Barnes & Noble store in Torrence, Calif., Friday night.

Witnesses, who captured this photo on their cell phone, described the woman's screams like "a wild animal ... pure pain."

"We heard a woman screaming and we thought something was hurting her," said Dave Delgado, a witness. "When we heard the last scream, everybody came running. "

Witness Delia Ramsey said when she first heard the newborn baby cry, "It was really nice. Everybody started clapping."

The child, a boy, was born without any complications. He and the mother were transported to the hospital where they are resting.
