Deputy Robert Pounds pulled over a speeding car in Florida Tuesday but found more than a sheepish driver. In the back seat, a young woman was about to give birth. The driver, Jean-Louis Wilfrid, wasn’t interested in giving excuses to Deputy Pounds.

“Officer, you have the right to stop me, I’m not gonna even lie,” Wilfrid said. “We have a baby coming out.”

Wiflred’s wife, Fabienne Gorges, was indeed already crowning by the time Pounds saw her. In full view of the dashcam, the deputy can be seen leaping into action. He calls for backup and an ambulance, then retrieving latex gloves and a blanket from his squad car. He was able to deliver the baby in seconds.

“Congratulations, you have a baby girl,” said Pounds. He later wishes the newborn a happy birthday.

Thankfully for Wilfrid and Gorges (and their baby), Pounds had received training as a Sheriff’s Office deputy that had prepared him for this exact situation. Still, it wasn’t the easiest night for Pounds.

“I don’t get shook up too easily, but this was a little nerve-wrecking just because it was a newborn,” he told reporters. “My training kicked in and I just wanted to help mom and the baby.”

He also admitted that he did not immediately believe Wilfrid when he said that his wife was literally giving birth in the back seat, having heard some whoppers in his time as an officer.

“You’d be surprised, there’s several excuses you get for stopping somebody for speeding,” Pounds said. However: “That was a pretty reasonable excuse.”
