A routine traffic stop in North Carolina turned into a surprise over Thanksgiving weekend.
Sergeant Brian Maynard pulled over a speeding van in Wake County Saturday.
There the State Highway Patrol Trooper was confronted by a frantic Jimmy Baker and his pregnant wife, Laura, who was deep in labor.
Maynard called an ambulance, grabbed gloves and blanket, then went to the car to help.
EMS made it in enough time to deliver the couple’s baby girl. The newly-arrived Halyn Baker was taken to the hospital with her mom and dad.
Halyn’s appearance was unexpected. She was not due until Wednesday.
