Did Google Street View Capture A Baby Being Born On A German Sidewalk?

The strange images captured by Google Street Viewer have become Internet lore since the searching giant began to unroll their unbelievably awesome map function, but since Google took to the streets of Germany, things have decidedly gotten weirder. In the past several days there was the naked dude in a car trunk, but this latest may take the cake: an apparent emergency birth on a suburban sidewalk!

The British paper Mirror is suggesting that its a fake:

Taken in the Berlin suburb of Wilmersdorf, the snap of a woman lying on the pavement after seemingly having given birth as a kneeling man handles the newborn child has been met with a sceptical reaction.

A German reader has commented on one report: “There is a hospital across the street and they have no knowledge of a birth right in front of their door.”

But this claim cannot be completely substantiated by a search on Google maps – although there are several clinics nearby.
