CCTV Video Captures Birth on Side of Road

Helen Osborne of Leicester, UK, gave birth in the backseat of her car after she was stuck in a traffic jam on her way to the local hospital. The entire scene was caught on a closed-circuit video recording:

Closed circuit television operators who witnessed the birth were so marked by the event they witnessed that they tracked the couple down and presented them with a video of the birth.

Mr Sullivan said: "It has to be the ultimate birth video and one which we’ll treasure forever.[...]

In the footage, a motorist in a silver Land Rover is seen pulling in front of the couple's Peugeot and lending Mr Sullivan his mobile phone. The father-to-be called the emergency services who talked him through the birth.

A passing off-duty police officer and a patrol car arrived on the scene and directed traffic around the couple's car.
