Traffic was light Wednesday morning, but one little commuter was still in a bit of a rush.

A baby boy was delivered to Lodi, N.J., resident Soukaina Nekhlaoui, 25, at the mouth of the Holland Tunnel.

Abdel Elkarhat said he was driving his wife to Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, heading through the tunnel at about 6:45 a.m., when her labor advanced faster than expected. "I didn't know if I should stop inside the tunnel or just keep moving until I got out."

He kept moving, stopping at the tunnel exit to seek help.

Port Authority Tunnel and Bridge Officer George McCann, who is trained for emergency medical response, helped deliver the child.

Baby Nassim Mohammed Elkarhat and his mother were in good condition at New York Downtown Medical Center.

    Newark school enrollment problems

    Friday, August 22 2014 5:17 PM EDT2014-08-22 21:17:11 GMT
    The school year in Newark is getting off to a rocky start. Classes start in less than two weeks and parents are still waiting in line for hours to find out where their kids are enrolled. The problem is being blamed on a glitch in the school's new online open enrollment system. To say mother of three Jennifer Caraballo is frustrated may be an understatement. She is one of hundreds of Newark parents desperately now trying to find a new school for her children.
