HOUSTON, Texas — Each day thousands of babies are born in the U.S. Many are born in hospitals, fewer are born on freeways.

A woman gave birth to her child Monday morning while inside a van parked on the shoulder of I-45 southbound near Gulf Bank Road. The call came in just before 2 a.m.

The Houston fire department responded to the call and when they got there, they found a woman giving birth in the front passenger seat.

In the video, the newborn baby seen being taken from the van in a Mylar blanket before being taken to a nearby hospital.
