When Nicole Reynolds's water broke two weeks ahead of her due date, her husband sprung into action, packing his wife into the car.
Yet Aaron Reynolds, from San Diego, California, never quite made it to the hospital - after his Port Expedition ran out of gas.
After re-routing to a gas station on the way to the hospital, Nicole could wait no longer and her husband delivered their third child on the freeway.
