Officers deliver baby on his birthday

Police Officer Shares Birthday with Baby He Delivered During Gridlock


Ask any police officer on the street and they'll tell you that there's no such thing as a "routine traffic stop."

Such was the case for Atlanta officer Tim Sheffield yesterday, who noticed a stopped car on the side of Interstate 25.

He approached to see if they were having car trouble, but car trouble it was not -- they were having a baby!


Amy Anderson and her husband were on the way to the hospital when they got caught in the Atlanta gridlock.

According toe Sheffield, "That baby was definitely coming no matter what."

"I walked up and I looked and I could see that the baby was just about to come on out, so I went back and got my first aid kit, I walked back up there," Sheffield said. "The dad was real calm, the mom was a super trooper."

A few moments later, baby Grace had arrived.

"I said, that's awesome. Today's my birthday. So it was kind of a neat birthday surprise."

Ladies, not being a woman, I have no idea of what it feels to have a baby. They were on their way to the hospital, so obviously the woman had an idea she was going to give birth. So, out of public interest, just what does it feel like. What do you feel that tells you the little one wants to come out?

Why do writers always have to be negative about every thing in this world?

Since when does I 95 or I 25 go through Atlana , Ga. I 95 is over 200 mile away and I 25 is nearly 2000 mies away. Now with that sai I 85, I75, a I 20 all run through atlanta and I285(the perieter) runs aound Atlanta,Ga.

Bravo ! At least some one knows something about the interstate system in this country ! I was appalled as well to see that articles are published with such erroneous "facts". After seeing such egregious statements, why should anyone believe anything this "author" has to say !

Well, now THIS is a story I didn't EXPECT to read. I'm NOT surprised that this would have happened as this burst of arctic air came ALL THE WAY down to the "Deep South".

WHO proofreads these AOL articles??? "According toe Sheffield..." Also, talk about choppy sentences! It seems there are typos and grammatical errors in every single AOL/Huffpo article any more.

As far as the article goes, many congratulations to the parents and a very Happy Birthday and congratulations on a job well done to the officer!

Not only that but there ae geographical eas too. Head line reads I95 in Atlanta, which I95 is 200 mles east of Atlanta , and then it says I25 which I 25 runs From New Mexico to Montana which again is nowhere near Atlanta, Ga.
