The incident was filmed in the city of Richmond Heights in Cuyahoga County in the US state of Ohio on Wednesday morning, and the footage was shared on Facebook by police.

The Richmond Heights Police Department said they were “feeling blessed” after helping to deliver the unnamed mother’s baby.

The police wrote on Facebook: “Officer Ross helping deliver a baby. This will bring a tear to your eyes, especially when you hear the baby start crying.

“Nice job Officer Ross in helping deliver a baby! Most importantly congratulations to the Mom and Dad and new baby boy! Great job Mom!”

The incident took place after the father flagged down the police car because there was no time to get the pregnant woman to hospital.

In the footage, the mum-to-be appears to be in labour as Officer Ross stands outside the couple’s vehicle, parked on the side of the road.

The cop then gets inside the car to help the woman with her final pushes.

At the end of the clip, the newborn is heard crying as the cop says “that’s all we wanna hear”.

The officer later said that he never expected he would be involved in a birth.

The baby boy is reported to be doing well.
