Mom gives birth while stuck in Shore traffic

A Monmouth County 911 dispatcher is receiving praise for helping a father deliver his baby Saturday evening along Route 36 in Sea Bright.



Elyse Parker is the dispatcher that took the call. Middletown parents Rosemarie and Trevor Abbud were stuck in traffic along Ocean Avenue outside the Sands Beach Club in Sea Bright when Rosemarie went into labor.



Bella Rose Abbud was born and is said to be in great health.



A trauma nurse and a Rumson EMT who heard the mother's screams also rushed over to assist in the delivery.
