Oklahoma Woman Delivers Baby on Side of Highway

2018-08-08 16:44
An Oklahoma woman gave birth on the side of a highway on Aug. 3. Tulsa firefighters said they received the call around 6:30 a.m. about the woman. “We responded to a call of a childbirth and what was interesting about the call is it’s on the side of the highway,” firefighter Weston Hodges told Fox 23. "It’s a pretty busy highway, especially coming off of the construction, so there were some traffic issues, but we were well off the side of the road and we were able to block traffic and make sure it was a safe scene for everybody." The woman, identified as Felisha Pierce, was on I-244 near Harvard when she went into labor, preventing her from driving to the hospital. Crews arrived to find the baby already delivered and in the mother's arms. They were later transported to a nearby hospital. Pierce said she and her son, Grayson Pierce, are doing fine.
