Troopers help deliver baby on the side of freeway

HILLSIDE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (NBCNews) – Two state troopers helped a woman safely give birth on the side of the freeway, and the delivery is caught on dash camera.

The dash camera video released by the New Jersey State Police gives us a front row seat as the troopers give the woman instructions.

The woman and her husband were driving to a hospital when the baby decided she couldn’t wait. The couple pulled over and called 911.

By the time the troopers arrived, mom was in the back seat, ready to give birth.

The baby girl was born at 4:26 a.m.

An ambulance later took the family to an area hospital, where at last check they are doing well. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
