Video: Woman in Labor ‘Not Allowed’ to Cross Street to Hospital Over Obama’s Impending Motorcade

Witnesses say a pregnant woman in labor was prevented by authorities from crossing a Los Angeles street to a hospital Wednesday because the road had been closed for President Barack Obama’s impending motorcade.

The unidentified woman was barred from walking the few hundred feet to the hospital for at least 30 minutes as authorities waited for the president’s motorcade to pass by, witness Carrie Clifford told TheBlaze early Thursday morning.

“I felt bad for her,” Clifford said. “It does happen when Obama comes to L.A. or I’m sure anywhere else. It paralyzes the city, it does make it complicated.”

“You can’t do the things you had set out to do because the president is in town,” she added.

KNBC-TV reporter Robert Kovacik posted footage on video-sharing website Instagram depicting the incident.

“Woman in labor on bench as motorcade passes,” he wrote, “not allowed to cross street to get to #CedarsSinai.”

A spokesperson for the LAPD declined to comment on the incident early Thursday morning and referred TheBlaze to the Secret Service. A spokesperson for the Secret Service did not immediately return TheBlaze’s phone call.

Video, however, captured by Kovacik shows an unidentified sergeant explaining the circumstances.

“As soon as we can — it looks like the motorcade is coming through right about now, so we’ll be able to open it up for traffic. The first thing we’ll try to get through will be an ambulance, but I can’t guarantee there will be —,” the officer said before the video suddenly ended.

A picture snapped by Clifford showed medics attending to the woman as they waited for the road to reopen.

Thanks Obama.

Would she have preferred to be mowed down? Imagine those headlines. I don;t think anyone was surprised by his visit there, does she not know another route?? At least she had people there to help. Did she deliver on the sidewalk??

It's just a pregnant  woman...if the baby had died or there had been complications..it would have just been another baby down the tube.. Obama has no problem with the killing babies who survive abortion..what's the difference with this..no biggy.

Orrrrrrr she could have done what many others do and either A: call an ambulance B: find a different route to the hospital since you know the POTUS is in town or C: take her chances and run

If the road was clear and it was safe to cross, one of those law enforcement officers should have escorted her across the street.

Oh wait.  I forgot - 

THANKS OBAMA.

Really?  Where does Obama say he's ok with killing babies that survive abortion?  Source, please.

Look it up yourself...hint:  it was how he voted when he was a senator.. I'm tired of looking up things for you libs over and over and over again.. Disprove it if you want.  or TRY to.

Oh my gosh..lets let the lady in labor LOOK FOR AN ALTERNATE route instead of just crossing the road to GO have a baby.  How charming  and caring of you..
