Blizzard conditions and slick roads forced an expectant couple's car to the side of the road in northern Michigan, where the woman gave birth.
Bradley Porter's mom, Jessica, went into labor with him early Sunday. That's when she and her husband, Greg, began the treacherous trek from their home in East Jordan to Munson Medical Center in Traverse City.
But the blizzard halted the Porters' trip.
The Traverse City Record-Eagle says the couple pulled to the side of the road in Elk Rapids and called authorities.
Village police arrived, and Officer Michael Courson helped deliver Bradley in the car.
Baby and mother then finished their long, snowy trip to the hospital in the back of an ambulance.
