Baby boy born along Montgomery Co. interstate

A newborn came into the world in a most dramatic way early Thursday morning-- on the side of Interstate 270!

The little boy was born along I-270 near Shady Grove Road just north of Rockville.  The father called 911, telling the operator who answered, "I'm having a baby right on the side of 270!"

The situation was further complicated because it was a breech birth. 

"I started to feel the urge like I needed to push and my water broke-- so when that happened I felt something coming out, so I tried to feel what it was.  And we missed the exit to the hospital, so I asked my husband to pull over. He gets out of the car and determined it was a foot-- and it was blue. We were a little panicked and didn't know what to do. So naturally we called 911 and then my husband delivered the baby," mother Amanda Nelson said. 

Mom, dad and baby Jacob were taken to Shady Grove Adventist Hospital. Everyone is doing just fine now.
