Seattle police deliver baby after pulling over speeding car

When Seattle police officer Anthony Reynolds pulled over a car he had observed speeding and jumping red lights, little did he suspect that he would be helping to deliver a baby.

No sooner had an ambulance been called than the mother gave birth.

Realising the newborn was having respiratory difficulty, Officer Reynolds helped the mother to clear the baby's airway allowing her to breathe again.

Following the dramatic childbirth, mother and daughter were taken to a nearby hospital, and were said to be in a stable condition.
