Baby-delivery scare snarls traffic on I-5 near Boeing Field
The 22-year-old woman was in intense labor on her way to Swedish Medical Center when medics were alerted at 7:47 a.m. , said Tukwila Fire Department Battalion Chief Lavern Peterson. A unit from Tri-Med Ambulance and a Tukwila fire crew assisted with getting the woman to the hospital.
Peterson said the woman made it to Swedish in time to have her baby.
The State Patrol had reported earlier that the woman delivered the baby on I-5 and that the mother and child were taken to Harborview Medical Center.
