The driver pulled over and the cousin jumped into the back seat.

“And told her to push, that’s the only thing I could do cause the head was already out,” said the woman’s cousin Cherley Zamor. “So she pushed, the baby came out, I picked her up, tapped her on the butt. We’re happy it’s a healthy baby girl.”
