Talk about a special Mother’s Day delivery.
Los Angeles Police Officers Maraea Toomalatai and Brian Armendariz probably thought they were doing a routine stop when they pulled over a speeding car early Sunday morning. But when they found mom-to-be Sasha Murphy inside, in active labor, they knew this was no ordinary situation.
With some quick thinking, the officers helped deliver a healthy baby right inside the vehicle. A thankful mom and dad named the baby boy Messiah Tindley.
From the LA Times:
The officers instructed the father, Mohammed Tindley, to follow them, giving the couple a police escort to Dignity Health California Medical Center.
When they arrived at the hospital, one officer alerted staff while the other assisted Murphy, who gave birth to a healthy baby boy, police said.
Messiah Tindley was born inside the vehicle escorted by the officers, the LAPD said.
The department later commended the officers, who each have three years of service with the LAPD, for jumping right into action and handling the sensitive situation appropriately.
“The officers’ quick thinking, compassion, reasoning and loving character reflected positively in our community,” the LAPD said. “These two officers understand the importance of our mission, vision and core values and should be commended.”
Congratulations to the new parents. We wish mom, dad, and Messiah the best.
