Baby Delivered in Truck During Sandy

During Hurricane Sandy’s high winds and heavy rain, a New Jersey woman gave birth to a baby boy in a hospital’s make-shift medical shelter to aid residents immobilized by flooding.


Christine Schleppy, 34, was only 35 weeks into her pregnancy when she started having contractions on Monday near the height of the storm. When they became more frequent around 6 p.m., her husband called 911 and an ambulance arrived.
