By Eric M. Johnson SEATTLE (Reuters) – Seattle police witnessed the “miracle of childbirth” when a patrolman pulled over a speeding car en route to an area hospital, and ended up helping a woman in labor deliver her baby girl, police said on Monday. Patrolman Anthony Reynolds pulled over a car he saw speeding through red lights at about 3:45 p.m. local time on Sunday, Seattle police said in a statement. “The couple’s baby was determined to beat medics to the scene,” police said, adding that the officers witnessed the “miracle of childbirth.” After her first full-throated cry, the newborn began struggling to breathe, and, with the help of the mother, Reynolds “cleared the baby’s airway and got her breathing again,” police said.
