Officers pull over speeder, deliver baby

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Two Milwaukee police officers got a whole lot more than they bargained for when they pulled over a speeder downtown.

They had watched the driver speed through red lights and blow his horn. When they pulled him over, they found a woman in the passenger seat whose baby was literally on the way.

Felipe Alva was trying to make it to a nearby hospital Wednesday night in time for his wife, Brenda, to deliver. But, 6½ pound Isabella wasn't about to wait.

Officer Xavier Benitez says he was basically the catcher as the baby arrived. The officers cleared the baby's airways just before a medical unit arrived. Officer Adam Bradley tells WISN-TV nothing compares with bringing a life into this world.
