A state trooper turned the backseat of a car into a delivery room when a mother just couldn’t wait to get to the hospital to have her baby.
It was a speedy deliver for an expectant mom and dad and the two troopers who were in the right place at the right time.
A Plainville dad and his wife in labor tried to make it to Brigham and Women’s Hospital, but on the highway near the Braintree split, they had to call 911.
“I determined that they weren’t going to make it, so we knew what we had to do,” dispatcher Charles Tilden said.
Troopers Walker and St. Ives were nearby, heard the call, found the car and tried to escort to the hospital — but the baby put the brakes on that plan.
