NEW YORK — New York officers made a special delivery on the side of the road during Tuesday morning rush hour, ABC 7 reported.

An expectant mother went into labor and the baby wasn’t going to wait for a hospital.

Detective Michael Sharpe was in an unmarked vehicle when he heard the call for the woman in labor. He located the family in their vehicle on the side of the road then assisted the child’s father in the delivery of a healthy 7-pound, 6-ounce baby girl.

The two wrapped the newborn in a blanket and kept her warm while an ambulance arrived to take the mother and baby to the hospital.

The family named their child Nicola Wong.

The department tweeted a photo of the delivery and it received over 692 favorites and 344 retweets.
