AUSTIN Texas (KXAN) — Happy birthday to this Austinite who was delivered on the side of the road Thursday morning.
The right shoulder was blocked on Intestate 35 and Airport Boulevard while a woman delivered her own baby. A 911 caller at 4:53 a.m. said “the baby’s coming out!” ATCEMS did not arrive until 4:59 a.m. after the baby was already born.
The shoulder is back open at the 5800 block of N I-35 on the southbound side. The mom and her new baby are doing fine after finally making it to St. David’s Hospital.
