A newborn has had his first brush with the law in Victoria, after three police officers helped deliver him in the back of a car.
The baby's father ran into the Footscray police station about 7am (AEST) on Saturday and begged the officers to help his wife, who was in labour in the car.
The Kingsville parents-to-be were on the way to hospital but realised they weren't going to make it.
Constables Amber Rawson and Deborah Clymo called triple zero while Sergeant Fiona Curnow, a mother-of-three, made the mum comfortable in the car outside the police station.
Sgt Curnow delivered the baby boy safely in the car before paramedics arrived.
He's the first child for the happy couple.
The new family was taken to the Royal Women's Hospital by ambulance, where mum and baby were said to be doing very well.
