The baby just couldn't wait, so a woman has given birth in a car on bridge on the South Carolina coast.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reported a mother and her baby daughter were doing fine after the woman gave birth on the Ravenel Bridge linking Charleston and Mount Pleasant about 7 a.m. Wednesday.
The woman and her family were headed to the Medical University of South Carolina hospital when they took a wrong turn and ended up on the bridge.
A Mount Pleasant Police officer found the car and by the time emergency workers arrived, the woman had given birth.
Charleston County Emergency Medical Services Director Don Lundy says his crews average about one delivery a month.
