Light Snow In Atlanta Causes Baby To Be Born In Traffic


A baby girl was born inside a car after light snow in Atlanta made road conditions so bad, her parents could not reach the hospital in time.

The baby was delivered around 5:25 p.m. without complications, with help from the father and a police officer, CBS reports.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, paramedics were dispatched to take the family to the hospital.
