State Trooper Helps Deliver Baby Off Highway In Quincy
QUINCY (CBS) – Mother and baby are said to be doing fine after Massachusetts State Police troopers assisted in a delivery on the road in Quincy on Sunday morning.
A Plainville man rushing his pregnant wife to Brigham & Women’s Hospital realized they were not gong to make it, so they called state police at around 2:30 a.m.
The man was traveling north on I-95 and state police advised him to get I-93 North, where he was seen by Trooper Scott Walker.
“Trooper Walker observed the vehicle on I-93 Northbound,” said Trooper Reid Bagely. “The dispatcher told them to have the expectant father exit at Furnace Brook Parkway in Quincy so that he’ll be off the highway so that an ambulance will respond.”

Bagely said once the car stopped, Trooper Walker assisted the woman in the backseat of the family car.
The baby was born at 2:51 a.m., and mother and child were then taken to Brigham and Women’s.
