MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police officers are often called upon to deal with all kinds of difficult situations. And, for an officer in North Mankato, that included delivering a baby.

Tricia Stenberg started having contractions early Monday morning and the baby started coming fast — so they called 911.

By the time Officer Shawn Morgan got there, Stenberg was in full labor.

Morgan called for EMTs, but the baby was delivered before they could get there.

“We deal with so much bad things, see so many bad things but to have something like this to be a part of it was so great,” Officer Morgan said.

Stenberg said she was very thankful he was there to help.

“He was professional and very calm and he did a wonderful job in that situation and we’re grateful for him,” she said.

The family went to the hospital right after the baby was delivered, and they only had to stay for one night.

Officer Morgan also went to the hospital to check on the newborn. He reported the baby is healthy and doing well.
