A Florida woman gave birth in the back of her car after a crash halted her trip to the hospital. Luckily, a nurse was close behind and assisted with the delivery of one of the twins in the back of the mangled car.

Jessica Stanley's water broke at her home in Goulds, Fla., about 20 miles southwest of Miami. Her fiancé, Antavian Milton, was rushing Stanley to Jackson South Community Hospital when their car was struck making a turn.

Nurse Betty Horne was on her way to work when she saw the crash. Horne rushed to the wreckage to see if she could help. When she looked into the damaged car a frantic Milton told her Stanley was in labor. Stanley, knocked unconscious in the crash, was in the process of giving birth. The baby was crowning by the time Horne was able to assist Stanley.

Paramedics arrived shortly after the first baby was born. The second half of the twins was born via Cesarean section. The two boys, named Antavian II and Antavian III, as well as their mother and three siblings, who were also in the car, are doing fine.
