Family hits Boston traffic, baby born inside vehicle on Southeast Expressway

the boy’s name is Xavier and he decided to come on the Southeast expressway in Milton. A few weeks early. A few weeks and a few exits early firefighter john Wells holding baby Xavier earlier this afternoon, Just minutes after he was born, Stoughton family stuck in traffic on 93 northbound on the way to the hospital. It’s a lot of chaos on the expressway, especially on a day to day, won’t have a lot of traffic logistically getting ambulances out to the highway can be busy, it can take some time. The couple made the decision to pull over shortly after dad delivered the baby on his own in the breakdown lane before emergency crews arrived as a parent, I think any parent just wants to know uh the baby’s healthy and that moms healthy so that’s the end result. You know, we got what we needed. Then an ambulance from South Shore Hospital happened to be driving by and helped with cutting and clamping the umbilical cord. Firefighters then brought the baby to a brewster ambulance, which was also nearby. Then loaded Mom on the stretcher, taking them both to Beth Israel deaconess Medical Center thumbs up in a pat on the back. For dad for a job well done all around. It was mom’s third. But for the dad, having a boy on Father’s Day weekends, pretty cool again. Mom and the baby are said to be doing just fine tonight. We’re in Longwood. I’m Peter Iliopoulos, WCVB News Center Five. Okay.

Family hits Boston traffic, baby born inside vehicle on Southeast Expressway

A Massachusetts mother and baby were resting comfortably Thursday night at a Boston area hospital, after the infant’s mother gave birth on the Southeast Expressway earlier in the day. We’re told the baby’s father delivered the infant inside their vehicle, which pulled into the breakdown lane near Exit 11 in Milton Thursday morning. The family said Baby Zavier was due in July, but his mother went into labor early at their Stoughton home and the family got stuck in traffic on their way to the hospital. “He decided to come on the Southeast Expressway in Milton a few weeks early,” firefighter John Wells, who met the family along the side of the highway, said. Wells said baby Zavier was crying, had good colors and appeared healthy.”It was mom’s third, but for the dad having a boy on Father’s Day weekend, that’s pretty cool,” Wells said. An ambulance arrived at the scene a short time later and brought both mom and baby Zavier to Beth Israel Medical Center in Boston, where both were doing well Thursday night.
