BOSTON (AP) — A Massachusetts state trooper helped deliver a baby after the mother went into labor on the way to the hospital.
The Revere couple was driving to the hospital at about 2:40 a.m. Tuesday just hours after a huge snowstorm when it became apparent that the birth was imminent. The father stopped the car on Storrow Drive west and called 911. When he noticed a cruiser approaching, he flashed the lights of his sport utility vehicle to attract the trooper’s attention.
Trooper Patrick Devin assisted in the birth and wrapped the baby boy in a blanket.
Emergency medical technicians arrived on the scene and took mother and baby to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
The parents’ names were not immediately made public.
