LAPORTE COUNTY, Ind. — An Indiana State Police trooper helped with a special delivery Friday afternoon.

Trooper Thomas Maymi was working the Indiana Toll Road in LaPorte County when a truck driver stopped and ran to his car. The driver told the trooper his wife was probably in labor and they needed help. 

Maymi ran to the semi and found the driver's wife was in labor and there was not enough time to make it to the hospital. 

The trooper called for an ambulance and helped the mother with her contractions until EMS arrived. The baby was delivered two minutes after paramedics stepped in.

ISP said the mother and baby Malaki are doing fine. Malaki's middle name is Thomas, after Trooper Thomas Maymi.
