Kansas woman delivers twins on side of Lincoln highway

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Kansas woman rushing toward Lincoln after her water broke delivered twins on the side of the highway.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports 36-year old Laura Clark, of Barnes, Kansas, told her 39-year-old husband Kevin Clark to pull over Thursday morning and call 911, because one of the babies had already been born.

After placing the call, Kevin Clark says he wrapped the baby in a blanket and tied off the umbilical cord, and then the second one was born.

Lancaster County Sheriff’s Capt. Ben Houchin says rescue crews arrived shortly after the second birth and took the babies to Bryan Medical Center East Campus in Lincoln, where he says the newborn boy and girl are doing well.

The couple says they haven’t yet decided on names.
