Cop shock: Police delivers baby in roadside drama
A quick-thinking police officer has helped deliver a baby by the roadside in Melbourne’s outer north-east.
First Constable Alana Olivieri was on her way to work on Saturday evening when she noticed a driver abruptly pull over on Yan Yean Road in Doreen.
She pulled over and peered inside to find a frantic husband and expectant mum along the backseat in the final stages of labour.
Ms Olivieri called Triple Zero and the call-taker provided some much-needed direction as little Charles Arthur Sherwood was brought into the world.
“It’s good to see someone had the decency to name their child in the manner Harry and Meghan’s child should have been named!”
Second-time parents Kyle and Melissa Sherwood now at home with their new bub.
