Ga. police help deliver infant during snowy traffic jam

Sandy Springs Police Capt. Steve Rose says the baby girl was delivered around 5:20 p.m

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — Police in suburban Atlanta say they helped deliver a baby girl along a highway when snow and ice brought traffic to a crawl and sometimes as halt.

Sandy Springs Police Capt. Steve Rose says the baby girl was delivered around 5:20 p.m. Tuesday. It's unclear if her parents were headed to the hospital when they got stuck in the horn-honking snarl that caused 30-minute commutes to turn into hours-long odysseys.

Traffic came to a halt along major arteries as many ended their workdays early and tried navigating slippery highways that rarely are covered in snow.

Rose called the delivery "flawless."

He says an ambulance arrived just after the baby was delivered and the girl was taken to a local hospital. The parents' identities have not been released.
