Father Delivers Baby Roadside , Interstate 93 North, Manchester

On April 6, 2020 at approximately 9:26 PM Troopers from the New Hampshire State Police Troop B Barracks in Bedford and members of the Manchester Fire and Rescue were requested by 911 services to respond to the Interstate 93 North at mile 18.6 for a vehicle that was pulled over with a female who was in active labor. Within moments and before emergency personnel arrived the 911 operator advised that the father had successfully delivered their new baby.

Upon arrival, Trooper Bradley Pierson and members of the Manchester Fire and Rescue were greeted by a relieved and happy family. Camille and John Swope of Londonderry welcomed their son Miles into this world in an unexpected way. At the time they were on their way to the Elliot Hospital but Miles did not want to wait that long. Mom, Dad and Miles were transported by ambulance to the Elliot Hospital and all are doing well.
