CARROLLTON, Ohio (AP) – Amy and Jim Albert’s truck handled a special delivery when it broke down on the way to a hospital.

A pregnant Amy was having painful contractions when the couple left their home on Wednesday. But they had to pull over about 45 minutes from the hospital when their truck died.

Amy’s water then broke, but the expectant mom was prepared. A paramedic, she brought towels just in case.

Jim said his newborn daughter was in his hands before he even knew what happened.

Amy’s fellow paramedics soon came along to take the couple and healthy little Erin Nicole Albert to a hospital.
