A deputy with the Collier County (FL) Sheriff's Office delivered a baby at a traffic stop early Tuesday morning.

The agency posted an image of the happy father standing beside Deputy Robert Pounds with the caption, "Here's more proof that deputies just never know what they are going to encounter on the job. Dep. Robert Pounds spotted a car doing 63 mph in a 45 mph zone on Airport-Pulling Road around 4:30 this morning, so he conducted a traffic stop. When he approached the car he quickly realized the passenger was in labor and about to deliver a baby."

The post continued, "Pounds called for EMS and backup, then grabbed a blanket. He delivered a beautiful baby girl and made sure the mom was OK and the infant was breathing. Once EMS arrived they cut the cord, checked out the mom and baby and transported them to the hospital."
