Elk Rapids in the national news

Local hero

And in Michigan, Jessica Porter went into labor early Sunday during a storm, forcing her and her husband, Greg, to begin a treacherous trek of about 50 miles to a hospital in Traverse City. When blizzard conditions and slick roads halted the trip, they pulled to the side of the road in Elk Rapids and called authorities. Village police arrived and Officer Michael Courson helped deliver baby Bradley in the car.

“That was our only option,” Greg Porter told the Traverse City Record-Eagle. “The little one decided that he couldn’t wait any longer. He’s got a heck of a story to tell.”  AOL News
