Trooper helped deliver baby on snowy highway

Mother went into labor on way to hospital

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.
