BRAINTREE, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – A South Shore couple delivered their baby girl in the breakdown lane during rush hour.
Emilee and Lance Cannon couldn't make it to the hospital in time Tuesday night and had no choice, but to pull over and welcome the baby into the world on Route 3 in Braintree.
Luckily, state troopers and firefighters were on the opposite side of Route 3 putting out a car fire.
Trooper Shawn Hatchell stopped traffic, raced across six lanes, and jumped the barrier to find a darling surprise… beautiful baby Ainslee Cannon.
Lance told FOX 25 both mother and baby are healthy and fantastic.
