Little Zander Whynot can lay claim to one complicated delivery, thanks to a ferocious Nova Scotia blizzard.
Zander was born Friday morning to Candis and Jason Whynot, of Springfield, N.S., just hours after a snowplow escorted his mother's ambulance to hospital.
Snowplow driver Gerald Mullen got the call early Thursday morning to clear the road so an ambulance could reach Candis, an anxious mother-to-be.
After clearing a path through the driving snow for the emergency crew, he started back down the road, only to find the ambulance in a ditch.
Mr. Mullen, 59, picked up the paramedic, drove her to the house and called a neighbour with a four-wheel-drive truck to pull the ambulance out.
Eventually, the ambulance was yanked free and it delivered Candis to the Bridgewater hospital.
