BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. -- Two state troopers got a little surprise Thursday morning when they stopped to help a driver on the side of the road in Boulder County.
The woman inside was in labor and about to give birth.
The troopers called for backup and shortly thereafter a Boulder County deputy arrived at Colorado 287 and Lookout Road to help.
With instructions and guidance from emergency dispatchers on the radio, all three officers helped deliver the baby inside the vehicle at 9:04 a.m., about 10 minutes later.
The infant and his mother were transported to the Good Samaritan Hospital in Lafayette in good condition.
