Woman delivers baby on the side of the freeway

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Happy birthday to a little baby girl who was delivered on the side of the road Thursday morning.

The right shoulder was blocked on Interstate 35 and Airport Boulevard in Austin, Texas while a woman delivered her own baby!

The father called 911 at 4:53am saying “the baby’s coming out!” ATCEMS did not arrive until 4:59 a.m. after the baby was already born.

The mom and her new baby girl are doing fine after finally making it to St. David’s Hospital. The father tells KXAN-TV the baby has been named Julieta!
