WAKE COUNTY, NC (WCBD) – Instead of delivering a ticket, a North Carolina State Trooper delivered a baby on the side of the road.
Dash cam video shows Sergeant Brian Maynard pulling over a van that was seen speeding down Highway 64 in Wake County late Saturday.
That’s when he found the pregnant female passenger in the vehicle about the give birth.
“When I stopped my car, he got out and said his wife was in labor,” recalled Sgt. Maynard. “He was trying to get to the hospital, and I said ‘right now?’ and he said ‘yes, right now.’”
Sergeant Maynard got a blanket and gloves from his police cruiser and helped the couple give birth.
Both parents, Jimmy and Laura Baker, and their newborn, Halyn, were later taken to a local hospital.
We are told mom and Halyn are in good health.
