A baby girl was born in the front seat of a car parked on Huron Avenue in Cambridge today after an expectant couple got caught in rush-hour traffic on their way to the hospital.
Two State Police troopers played the role of midwifes, coaching the mother through the birth and reassuring the anxious father.
Mother, daughter, and father are fine and are currently at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, which was their original destination. The family was identified as Mark and Nancy Bonassera, who are now the parents of a girl they have named Gabriella.
According to State Police, Mark Bonassera called 911 at 8:01 a.m. today saying he was stuck in traffic on Route 2 with a wife who was in labor and potentially about to deliver her child.
