WENDOVER — Twins were born Sunday morning near the Tree of Life.
A woman and a man were traveling east on I-80 near the Tree of Life sculpture around 9 a.m. when the woman, who was 30 weeks along in her pregnancy with twins, went into labor, according to Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Jimmy Banks.
The man delivered the first baby, Banks said, and began CPR when the baby was not breathing. Two highway patrol troopers arrived on the scene and were able to get the baby breathing independently.
The troopers assisted with the birth of the second baby, who was born shortly afterward and started crying immediately after birth, according to police.
Ambulance personnel arrived and attended to the mother and babies. Medical helicopters took the mother and babies to a Salt Lake hospital just after 10:30 a.m., according to police.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
