Massachusetts State Police Release – 10162016 – Baby Born on Massachusetts Turnpike
This evening at approximately 7:07 p.m., a call was received from a Framingham couple, who had just pulled over on the Massachusetts Turnpike, Interstate 90 Eastbound at the Allston Brighton tolls (exit 18). The Framingham woman was in labor.
State Police Weston Barracks dispatched area troopers and Boston EMS to the scene, as the couple had just pulled into the tandem parking lot just after the toll booth. Trooper Joseph Hilton was the first to arrive with Lieutenant William Nee shortly behind. They began rendering aide to the woman as she was in active labor.
Boston EMS arrived a short time later. At approximately 7:35 p.m., before the woman could be transported, a baby boy was delivered in the ambulance. They were then transported to Mass General Hospital.
Excellent work by all involved.
No further information is currently available. We will not be releasing the identity of the Framingham couple. Please do not call the barracks directly.
