LOS ANGELES (AP) – This was not your typical traffic stop.
Two Los Angeles police officers pulled over a speeding car early Sunday to find a woman about to give birth and a frantic man behind the wheels.
Police said officers Maraea Toomalatai and Brian Armendariz escorted the couple to a downtown hospital.
When they arrived at the hospital, one officer alerted the medical staff while the other helped the mother-to-be.
Police said a healthy boy named Messiah Tindley was born inside the car on Mother’s Day.
The LAPD later issued a photo of the newborn inside the hospital with his beaming parents – Sasha Murphy and Mohammed Tindley – and the equally beaming officers.
