Police Officer Pulls Over Speeding SUV, Helps Deliver A Baby

IOWA CITY, Iowa (March 14, 2013)--An Iowa City, Iowa, police officer pulled over a speeding SUV and then helped the driver and his passenger deliver a baby instead of writing a ticket.

When Officer Kevin Wolfe stopped the vehicle Sunday night, the driver jumped out and yelled, "Sir, we're delivering a baby right here, right now!"

Wolfe told Cedar Rapids TV station KCRG that by the time he reached the passenger door of the SUV, the baby's head and arms were already emerging.

He assisted in the final stages of the delivery and wrapped the child in a blanket before escorting the family to a hospital.

Wolfe's dashboard camera recorded the incident.

Wolfe didn't issue a speeding ticket and so he did not take down the parents' names, Police spokeswoman Vicki Lalla said.
