Baby Delivered Along Highway After Snow Stalled Traffic

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (January 29, 2014) Police officers in suburban Atlanta helped deliver a baby girl along a highway after snow and ice brought traffic to a crawl and sometimes to a halt.

Sandy Springs, Ga., Police Capt. Steve Rose said the baby girl was delivered around 5:20 p.m. Tuesday

It was unclear whether 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.

Traffic came to a halt along major arteries as many ended their workdays early and tried navigating slippery highways that rarely are covered in snow.

Rose called the delivery "flawless."

He said an ambulance arrived just after the baby was delivered and the girl was taken to a local hospital.

The parents' names weren’t released.
