A North Carolina state trooper is being hailed a hero after he helped a pregnant woman in need. 

Sergeant Brian Maynard was on patrol Saturday night when he spotted a van speeding and driving outside the traffic lanes.

He followed the van for a short time before pulling it over.

That’s when he discovered the pregnant passenger was about to give birth.

Sergeant Maynard quickly retrieved a blanket and gloves from his police cruiser and helped the couple give birth. 

The new mom and baby, named Halyn, eventually made it to the hospital. Both are reportedly in good health.
