HONOLULU (AP) - A police officer delivered a baby girl on a Honolulu freeway during the morning rush-hour commute.
The motorcycle officer delivered the baby at about 8 a.m. Thursday on the east-bound H-1 freeway near the Middle Street exit.
Officer Stephen Keogh says he delivered the baby in the front seat of the family's Nissan pick-up truck. He says the baby's parents were trying to make it to a hospital from their Waipahu home.
While it was the mother's third child, this was the second time Keogh delivered a baby while on duty on the freeway.
Emergency Services spokeswoman Shayne Enright says paramedics took mother and daughter to a hospital, where they were doing well.
The baby didn't yet have a name.
Sources tell KHON2 that state Department of Health Director Loretta Fuddy died in a plane crash off Molokai.
There's a grinch at the Hawaii State Veteran's Cemetery. At least, that's what those who have loved ones buried there are saying. They've been told their holiday decorations at gravesites will have to come down.
Meals will not be prepared at Waipahu Elementary School. At least, not until the state figures out why 42 people, mostly children, became sick after lunch on Tuesday.
