Suburban Atlanta Police Help Deliver Baby in Snowbound Traffic

January 30, 2014  | 

Police in suburban Atlanta say they helped deliver a baby girl along a highway when snow and ice brought traffic to a crawl and sometimes a halt, the Associated Press reports.

Sandy Springs (Ga.) Police Capt. Steve Rose says the baby girl was delivered around 5:20 p.m. Tuesday. It's unclear if her parents were headed to the hospital when they got stuck in the horn-honking snarl that caused 30-minute commutes to turn into hours-long odysseys.

I am so glad I never had to do that. That was the only thing I never wanted to do. I was trained how to deliver babies in the field but I never wanted to use that training and I didn't. Congrats to the Officers involved in this story.
