BALTIMORE, Md. — Two troopers from JFK Barrack helped a mother deliver her baby boy on the side of the road on I-695 last night.

Around 10 p.m. on Thursday, a man pulled onto the shoulder of I-695 where Sergeant Edward Luers and Trooper Zachary Mills were working overtime. He ran over to the troopers and told them his wife was having intense labor pains.

The two troopers called for EMS and ran to help the wife in the meantime. They realized EMS might not make it in time, so TFC Mills got in position to deliver the baby.

The baby was swaddled in towels the family had with them. EMS arrived five minutes after, and took the newborn and his parents to Johns Hopkins.
