Nurse delivers her own baby in car outside of her hospital

- A Pennsylvania nurse put her expertise to work over the weekend when she went into labor and delivered her own baby in her car outside the hospital where she's employed.

Katie Michael says her water broke during evening rush hour on Oct. 27. The Mechanicsburg couple tells WPMT-TV she knew the baby was going to be born in that car while they were on the way.

She's a nurse at the Harrisburg hospital they were heading toward, and delivered the baby girl outside in her car while her husband George Michael ran inside for help.

Katie Michael says she works in various specialties and units in the hospital, but can now add "Labor and Delivery" to her resume.

The Michael family says baby Ella Katherine is happy and healthy.
