Woman Gives Birth in DC Traffic Jam

Woman Gives Birth in DC Traffic Jam

A woman stuck in a traffic jam in Northeast Washington yesterday gave birth to her baby in her car, with coaching from a 911 dispatcher. Around 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday, the woman felt heavy contractions and called 911. The disptacher talked her through the delivery, and the baby was born before emergency crews arrived.

The mother and child were taken to a hospital, and both are doing fine.
