An unusual birthday in Newaygo County is giving the mother and a State Trooper something to remember.


State police say Trooper Owen McGuigan and a college intern were looking for a disabled Jeep on M-82 on Sunday.


A medical emergency had been called in to Central Dispatch and when McGuigan arrived on the scene he found a 41-year-old Grant woman in labor.


Police say McGuigan barely had time to call for an ambulance and put his gloves on when a healthy baby girl was delivered on the side of the road.


The mother and the baby were taken to a local hospital and are reportedly in good condition.
