Officer delivers baby on the freeway

SACRAMENTO, CA (NBC) - A trooper with the California Highway Patrol happened to be at the right place at the right time when he helped deliver a baby on a Sacramento freeway.

Officer Jeffrey Lloyd was completing a traffic stop when someone in a grey car pulled up behind him and started honking.

Come to find out, the woman in the passenger seat was in labor, and ready to give birth. Officer Lloyd notified dispatch, and then ran to his car to grab some medical equipment.

Moments later, a baby girl entered the world, but the baby wasn't making a sound.

The officer noticed the umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck, so he told the mom to lay on her stomach and the baby instantly started crying.

Officer Lloyd stayed with the mother and baby until help arrived.
