ELK RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan family has celebrated a pair of birthdays this week — one more eventful than the other.
Jessica Porter went into labor early Sunday during a big storm. She and her husband, Greg, began the trek of about 50 miles from their home in East Jordan to Munson Medical Center in Traverse City. The blizzard conditions and slick roads halted the Porters' trip.
The Traverse City Record-Eagle says the couple pulled to the side of the road in Elk Rapids and called authorities. Village police arrived, and Officer Michael Courson helped deliver Bradley in the car.
Baby and mother finished their snowy trip to the hospital in the back of an ambulance. They were discharged Monday, which was Greg Porter's birthday. He says it's the best birthday present.
