A quick-witted Massachusetts state soldier is credited with helping a pregnant woman get to hospital in time for a safe delivery, having first arrested her and her boyfriend for speeding.
At around noon on Wednesday, State Soldier Jose Cabrera timed a vehicle traveling over 100 miles an hour on Highway 91 in West Springfield and understandably stopped it, Massachusetts State Police said in an article on Facebook.

It was at this point that Cabrera was told by the driver that he was driving at high speed because his girlfriend, who was in the vehicle, was in labor and her water had just broken.
Cabrera initially called the dispatch of an ambulance, but none were available for assistance, so the soldier himself sprang into action, according to the message.
Cabrera then assured the mother-to-be that he would take her to the hospital, putting her in the back of her cruiser and ordering the boyfriend to follow him.

In a gesture of gratitude, the unidentified mother posed in a photo with Cabrera, who was allowed to hold the newborn.
