A state trooper who stopped a speeding SUV ended up helping to deliver a baby in Florida on Tuesday.

When two troopers pulled a man over for speeding, he told them his wife was having a baby and her contractions were about five minutes apart.

The three got her out of the SUV and onto a blanket on a grassy area on the side of the road, and things escalated quickly. The baby girl entered the world before an ambulance could arrive.

The father caught the baby and handed her to a trooper, who patted her back to help clear her lungs.

Body camera video captured the sound of the baby crying and the parents' relieved sighs.
