TMSG: Newborn Named After State Trooper That Delivered Him On Side Of Road
Trooper Thomas Maymi was working a shift on the Indiana Toll Road when some things unfolded with a mom-to-be.
While observing traffic, he noticed that a male driver had stopped his semi-truck, exited his vehicle and was running across the highway towards him. The man, Carl Robertson, told the officer that he needed help as his wife was pregnant and "might be in labor."
Maymi jumped into action. First he called dispatch to call for an ambulance. Then followed Robertson to his truck to check on his wife Shaniqua Traywick. Maymi realized that there wasn't going to be enough time to transport the patient to the hospital and he would need to deliver the baby.
He helped Traywick with her contractions until EMS arrived at the scene, but within two minutes, Traywick's son made his arrival. They were transported to the hospital where the family was later confirmed to be doing fine.
In a very sweet notion to Trooper Thomas Maymi, the parents revealed that they named their son Malaki Thomas Robertson, his middle name after Maymi's first name.
