BOSTON (CBS) – A local mom found herself in the middle of quite an ordeal during rush hour Tuesday morning in Boston.

EMTs responded to the Keystone Apartments in Dorchester around 9:45 a.m. to transport that pregnant mom to the hospital so she could deliver her baby.

But, they didn’t make it in time. The crew had to pull the ambulance off I-93 onto Freeport Street, where they delivered a baby girl just after 10 a.m.

Mom and baby eventually arrived at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where they are said to be doing well.

It was mom’s second child and the second child EMT Hakim Reid has delivered in his five years working for Boston EMS.

EMT Bill Clapp, an 11-year veteran who also helped, says he has helped deliver more than a dozen babies.
