This is so ridiculous.
A British couple, Katie Amos and Lee Johnston, were on a 5-day vacation in New York City when the unexpected happened:
Their baby Dax decided he wanted to be an American citizen… so he popped out 11 weeks early!!

The problem is now baby Dax's parents are stuck in NYC, unable to pay their bill!
They've started a fundraising page for their medical bills and wrote a very cute, very Britishy description that read:
"Hi, my name is Dax Johnston. My Mummy and Daddy went on a 5 day break to New York as a last get away before I came along! They went to a cake shop (Mummy loves cakes), and were walking through Central Park on a movie tour and I decided they were having such a good time I wanted to see what all the fun was about, and I decided to pop out 11 weeks early!!!!! Oooops! Maybe it wasn't a good idea as now we are not aloud to leave the hospital until March the 10th!!!!! We need your help as Mummy and Daddy have no money, no clothes, no friends or family or a familiar face to just say hello to! I know they are scared, but they have some good friends back home that are working very hard to help me! I have already appeared in 3 News Papers! Even the Daily Mirror! We are not sure if Mummy and Daddy's Travel Insurance is going to cover our costs so they are very worried as the bill is looking at being over $200,000 which is £130,000!!! Yikes! No matter how small a donation you can make it will be greatly appreciated. Thankyou xxx"
They're still pretty far away from their goal so any donation would help them out!
