Here's one way to get out of speeding ticket: A North Carolina state trooper helped deliver a baby on the side of the road after pulling over a speeding van on the highway.
WRAL-TV reports that State Highway Patrol Sgt. Brian Maynard pulled over a van going 85 mph (135 kph) late Saturday.
The couple in the van, Jimmy and Laura Baker, were headed to the hospital so she could give birth, but the baby had other plans and started coming before they could get there.
Maynard helped deliver the baby at roadside, calling the experience both "scary" and "rewarding."
Baby Halyn was later taken to a hospital. Jimmy Baker says his wife and their newborn are both doing well.
Getting ready to host relatives for the holiday really paid off for them.
As most of us got ready for Thanksgiving guests to arrive, we did mad cleaning to get the house looking good. And for a couple in Louisiana, that tidying really gave them something to be thankful for when they found a $1.8-million jackpot winning lottery ticket.
Tina and Harold Ehrenberg were cleaning the house and found some old, unchecked lottery tickets in the nightstand. When they checked, they realized one of the tickets from June was the big winner, and they discovered it just in time because it was set to expire in two weeks and they would have lost that money!
Now the couple plans to do the smart thing and put their winnings away for retirement. “We don’t have any plans to buy anything crazy or go on any big trips,” Tina says. And Harold adds, “The most fun is going to be depositing that check!”
