Woman delivers baby in car on Christmas Eve


HARRISBURG, PA. (WHTM) — It turns out that good things do come in small packages. On this Christmas Eve, they weren’t delivered by Santa, but a mother on the side of Interstate 81.

It may be cold outside, but this baby really can’t stay inside her mother. Shanea Bishop was having contractions less than a minute apart. She flagged down a state trooper right around mile marker 70 and the lower Paxton township line on Interstate 81 south.

An ambulance was on its way but so was Rhylee. She waited…..barely. First-responders arrived right as her water broke in the front seat of her car.

A new baby, four weeks early.

Rhylee weighs 4 pounds and 5 ounces and will spend her birthday in the NICU, but mom is just thankful she safely delivered the only present that matters this year.

The labor was anything but a textbook but a mother’s love, classic.
