LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A baby boy was born along Interstate 65 while it was closed during a visit to Louisville by President Obama Thursday, reports the CBS affiliate in the city, WLKY-TV.
The station says local EMS got a call at 5:13 p.m. that a mom-to-be was stuck in traffic on the highway.
Traffic in the area was at a standstill at the time to enable the president's motorcade to travel from the airport to downtown Louisville.
A nurse who was also stuck in traffic helped the mother through the delivery, with the assistance of EMS dispatchers, WLKY says.
Emergency crews got to the mother at 5:25 p.m.
The baby boy and his mother were then taken to a hospital and were said to be doing well.
