This morning at 5:15 a.m., Trooper Michael Close was working a paid detail at Charles Circle in Boston.  A Toyota Highlander pulled into the detail setup and the occupants signaled Trooper Close for help.  Trooper Close immediately went over to the vehicle and realized that the female passenger was in labor and the baby was crowning.

Trooper Close retrieved his medical bag, towels and blankets from his cruiser and proceeded to deliver the baby.  EMS arrived on scene and transported the baby girl and her mother to Massachusetts General Hospital.
