Bystander nurse, EMT help deliver baby born in car as couple gets caught in shore traffic

Two bystanders helped deliver a baby after her parents got stuck in traffic on a New Jersey shore highway.

The Asbury Park Press ( reports Rose and Trevor Abbud of Middletown were headed to a hospital Saturday night when it became apparent the baby would not wait. So Trevor Abbud pulled over, honked his car horn and called 911.

Two women who happened to be at a nearby beach club — trauma nurse Sarah Wood and Rumson First Aid Squad EMT Lauren Kammerer — heard the commotion and ran over to help. A short time later, Bella Rose Abbud was born.

Trevor Abbud said his daughter was healthy and doing well. The couple also has an 18-month-old son.
