— Two troop­ers from the JFK Bar­rack in Per­ryville helped a mother de­liver her baby boy on the side of the road on I-695 on

BAL­TI­MORE

Thurs­day night.

At 10:45 p.m. Thurs­day, a mo­torist pulled onto the shoul­der of I-695 where 1st Sgt. Ed­ward Luers and Tfc. Zachary Mills, from the JFK Bar­rack, were work­ing over- time at an I-695 con­struc­tion site, po­lice re­ported. The driver of the ve­hi­cle ex­ited and ran over to the troop­ers in their pa­trol cars to alert them his wife was hav­ing in­tense la­bor pains.

The troop­ers im­me­di­ately called for emer­gency med­i­cal ser­vice per­son­nel and ran to the wife to ad­min­is­ter aid, po­lice re­ported. They rec­og­nized the mother’s la­bor pains were be­com­ing worse. Sub­se­quently, Mills placed him­self in a po­si­tion to as­sist with the de­liv­ery. With one push, the baby boy was de­liv­ered into the arms of the trooper.

The baby was swad­dled in tow­els that the fam­ily had with them and placed upon the mother’s stom­ach, po- lice re­ported. Five min­utes later, emer­gency med­i­cal ser­vices ar­rived and assisted the new­born and his fam­ily with trans­porta­tion to Johns Hop­kins Bayview Med­i­cal Cen­ter in Bal­ti­more.
