Police officers got a surprise this week when they pulled over a car -- and found a woman giving birth.

The two Milwaukee officers thought they had a drunken driver on their hands when they chased a speeding car. When they pulled the car over and came up to the window, they could see why the car was speeding.

"I could see that she was actually giving birth. The head was fully crowned and everything," said Milwaukee police officer Xavier Benitez. "At that point I yelled across to my partner, 'We're having a baby!'"

The surrounding streets were blocked, so the officers put gloves on and offered their help.

Two minutes later, they delivered a healthy baby girl.

The officers have already visited the new baby and the family and say they are all doing great.
