The local Fire Department received a call and rushed to the freeway where they were told that there was a child birth in progress, only to discover that the baby was already born. 

Paramedics Nathan Ruszala and Alan Hamilton were so surprised when they arrived at the scene to find the couple was very calm about the situation.
