MEMPHIS, TN- (WMC-TV) - It's an incredible story... a precious baby boy was delivered on the side of the road with help from a Memphis police officer.
The baby came a few days early and he was born at 2 a.m. on American Way near Cherry Road.
MPD said one of their officers helped save the infant's life.
Weighing six pounds and eight ounces, the bundle of joy literally could not wait to get here.
"He's wonderful. He's breathing right. He's got his color coming in," said the mother who asked not to be identified.
The baby and his mother are now recovering in the hospital after his unique entrance into the world.
She went into labor in the middle of the night and tried to make it to the emergency room. Instead, they had to pull over.
"When I actually felt his head, I was like we're not going to make it...I was like, 'Oh my God, I can't believe this is happening,'" said the mother.
