Amid frigid temps, Fairfax Co. woman has baby in SUV

Posted: Updated:
FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. - As wind chills dropped below zero Tuesday morning, a Fairfax County couple welcomed their brand-new baby girl in a most unlikely place.  The healthy, 6-pound, 8-ounce baby girl was born in the back of their SUV on the side of the road. 

Fairfax County Police Department tells FOX 5 they were called to Nutley Street and Virginia Center Boulevard, near Interstate 66 in Fairfax.  That's where they found the couple, who had frantically called 911 asking for help.

Police say the woman was in the back seat of the SUV wrapped in blankets, and she was smiling.  When she pulled back the blanket, she revealed the baby she had just delivered.  Both mom and baby were taken to Fairfax Inova Hospital, where they are doing well.
