The new mother could not penetrate the thick jam in Midtown traffic while heading to the hospital forcing her to give birth in the car.

The winged doors of the fancy black X model electric car came in especially handy during the labor-intensive situation by making it a little easier for the mom and her brand-new baby to eventually disembark onto a gurney in Manhattan’s Garment District.

According to the reports by police officers, minutes before the birth, the expectant woman and her husband had flagged down cops as traffic came to a standstill.

The dad told cops he was traveling to the hospital but that he believed his wife might give birth before they could make it there.

“Officers began escorting the vehicle to the hospital but had to reroute to the nearer hospital due to heavy traffic. Officers then noticed the vehicle behind them had stopped. Upon checking on the occupants, they discovered the female had given birth in the vehicle,” said a police officer identified as Edward Riley.

In separate news published on YEN.com.gh, a kind police officer from Georgia won accolades for helping a woman deliver a baby on the side of the road.

The police officer saw a man frantically waving as if he was calling for help, which grabbed his attention. Officer Burt said he would do anything to serve the community he serves.

"I noticed the baby was little purple, which is kind of normal. It's kind of uplifting to show the police in a better side of life right now. I'm glad I was able to be a part of that," he was quoted by the media outlet saying.
