Woman gives birth along autoroute in canton Schwyz
A woman gave birth on the side of the A4 autoroute near Küssnacht in canton Schwyz yesterday morning.
Her husband was driving her to hospital as she had started contractions – but the baby started to appear and he stopped on the side of the road.
Ambulance teams – together with an emergency midwife - soon arrived and police closed one of the lanes and lowered the speed limit to make sure everyone was safe.
Shortly after, a healthy baby girl was born. The mother and child were then taken to hospital. All are doing well.
