Troopers help deliver Tennessee woman's baby on NJ Turnpike

Officials say two New Jersey state troopers helped deliver a baby girl for a Tennessee woman on the New Jersey Turnpike over the weekend.

Col. Patrick Callahan, the state police superintendent, said at the state’s daily coronavirus briefing Saturday that the Memphis woman was driving cross country with her husband when she sent into labor Saturday.

According to officials, the woman’s husband, a truck driver, led troopers to the cab of his tractor where his wife was lying in a bunk preparing to give birth.
