President of the United States, Barack Obama has made a pregnant woman to give birth while trapped in traffic on a highway in Louisville, Kentucky, after his motorcade caused heavy traffic.
The unnamed woman was in labour, and was on her way to the hospital for delivery when she was caught up in the traffic last Thursday.
Reports have it that the rush-hour traffic was at a standstill moving because Interstate 65 had been shut down so that the presidential motorcade could travel from the airport to downtown Louisville.
Thousands of motorists were stuck in the snarled traffic on both directions of the highway, as well as surface streets in the city, preventing emergency crews from getting to the laboring woman.
By the time they arrived 12 minutes after the papa-to-be’s distress call, the boy had been born. A nurse who was also stuck in the presidentially-caused congestion helped deliver the infant.
