MIAMI - A husband helped his wife deliver the couple's baby after they got stuck in rush hour traffic and then got lost on the way to the hospital.
Bumper-to-bumper traffic delayed Lilliam and Gerardo Miranda's trip to Jackson Memorial Hospital on Wednesday morning. Gerardo Miranda said he was so nervous he made a wrong turn about a mile from the hospital.
"She said, `Stop, stop, stop. There's no more time,'" Gerardo Miranda said.
He pulled their Chevrolet Cavalier over near the Orange Bowl while his wife called 911. The dispatcher guided Miranda, telling him to use his shoelaces to tie off the umbilical cord.
About a half hour after the couple left their Kendall home, 7-pound, 5-ounce Fabio was born. The couple's third child was more than a week early.
Both mom and baby were taken to a hospital in good condition.
"This didn't happen with our other children," Lilliam Miranda said.
