GENEVA, Ohio -- A Geneva, Ohio couple got the surprise of a lifetime when their baby boy came into the world a couple weeks early.  But here’s the kicker…he was born on the side of Interstate 90.

“I started getting contractions about 2:30 in the morning and they were very sporadic.” 

But just a couple hours later last Sunday, Kathleen King of Geneva says the contractions were six minutes apart. She and husband Michael jumped in the car, hopped on I-90 heading to the University Hospital’s Geauga Medical Center.  She says just a half mile down the road her water broke and minutes later, she was giving birth in a construction zone, near mile-marker 215.

That is where hubby Michael called 911.

"She just starts saying it more and more, oh my gosh, the baby's coming the baby's coming.  And that's when I looked over and saw the head coming out."

It took paramedics in Madison Township just 10 minutes to arrive on the scene. Both mom and baby Logan were taken to the hospital where they got a clean bill of health. Logan weighed in at 8 pounds, 9 ounces and his middle name is “Miles” since he was born exactly five miles away from home.
