A woman is recovering at St. David’s Medical Center after giving birth on Interstate 35 in North Austin early Thursday morning.
Austin-Travis County EMS Capt. Darren Noak said emergency crews were called to southbound lanes of Interstate 35 North, between Reinli and 51 streets at 4:53 a.m. after receiving reports of a woman in labor.
Crews arrived six minutes after being dispatched, but the baby had already been born.
Noak said both the mother and child were taken to St. David’s to be checked out.
