MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (WTMJ) – A traffic stop turned into a life-changing experience for two Milwaukee police officers.

Wednesday night, just after 10:15 p.m., MPD officers Xavier Benitez and Adam Bradley attempted to stop a speeding car on N. Water Street.

“Upon stopping the car on Water Street just north of W. St. Paul, they soon discovered the reason for the speed,” said Lt. Mark Stanmeyer with Milwaukee Police.

“The expectant father was trying to get his wife to St. Mary’s Hospital, as she was in labor.”

“I could see that she was actually giving birth. I mean the head was fully crowned and everything.” said Benitez.

Benitez delivered the baby in the front seat of their car in the middle of the road, with Bradley assisting. Milwaukee Fire and paramedics showed up a short time later and took the mom and baby to St. Mary’s Hospital.
