Kan. officer makes traffic stop, delivers baby

The Chicago Tribune

SPRING HILLS, Kan. A police officer made a traffic stop Thursday and ended up delivering the baby for the new parents who were speeding to the hospital.

Spring Hill Officer Andrew Peterson pulled over the couple on U.S. 169 in eastern Kansas, police said. The father, David Grate, got out of the car and told Peterson that his wife was giving birth.

The officer then helped the new mother, Charlotte, with the birth of the baby boy, Matthew.

Peterson wrapped the newborn in his jacket until paramedics arrived.
