A woman went into labor on the side of the Cross Bronx Expressway.

Traffic was backed up on the Cross Bronx Expressway in New York Wednesday morning, but not for the usual reasons.

Several lanes had to be shut down after a woman went into labor with twins on the side of the highway.

At about 11:40 a.m., EMS received a call for the incident in the westbound lanes near Rosedale Avenue.

Several ambulances and police all rushed in to help.

Police stopped traffic while emergency workers helped the woman:

The woman gave birth to one baby before being transported to Jacobi Medical Center, and the other at the hospital. One is a boy and the other a girl.

The mother is in fair condition and her babies are doing well.
