Officer Gabriel Munter did exactly that Wednesday morning on Interstate 85.
Munter had just cleared the scene of an accident near Club Boulevard around 9 a.m. when a driver frantically pulled up behind him. The driver told Munter that his wife was in labor.
Munter jumped into action. He grabbed some gloves and helped the woman deliver the baby girl.
A second officer, J.J. McDonough, also assisted Munter with the delivery.
Mother and child are said to be doing well at a local hospital.
