A Louisville, Kentucky police officer was in the right place at the right time when she encountered a woman in active labor.
Thompson was on patrol when a woman in a car began waving and screaming at her.
"She said, 'She's having a baby,'" Thompson said. "So I pull to the side of the road, open the car door and there's a partial head sticking out, and we just went from there and just pushed, and there came the joy of life."

Thompson said it only took 14 minutes. There was no time for an escort to the hospital.
"I was like, 'It's already coming, I got to do something,'" Thompson said. "I put some gloves on, I cradled the head and out it came."
