Roadside Birth Twins
Lynette Hales shakes hands with Utah Trooper Cameron Fawson while Jim Gerber, center, watches following a news conference at Intermountain Medical Center Monday, June 3, 2013, in Murray, Utah. Hales was nearly 100 miles from Salt Lake City on a rural stretch of highway surrounded by nothing but barren salt flats when her twin unborn babies decided it was time. She called police for help, but the nearest highway troopers were about 30 miles east on Interstate 80. The first baby couldn't wait. She delivered him at about 9 a.m. Sunday from the passenger seat of a minivan with the help of a friend who was driving her back from an overnight outing in Wendover. Her twin boys, J.J. and A.J., were born in a minivan with the help of Gerber and Fawson along with two other law enforcement officers. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)
