STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. The movie "Fargo" features Frances McDormand as a police chief investigating a crime while suffering morning sickness.
(SOUNDBITE OF FILM, "FARGO")
BRUCE BOHNE: (As Lou) You see something down there, chief?
FRANCES MCDORMAND: (As Marge Gunderson) No, I just think I'm going to barf.
INSKEEP: We now have a police chief who delivered a baby. He's Joey Staufer of Eagle, Colo. He was driving his wife to the hospital and didn't make it, so they stopped at a highway off-ramp. The chief delivered his daughter with directions from 911. It's MORNING EDITION.
