(Memphis) A Memphis police officer is being hailed as a hero for helping deliver, then save the life of a baby.

Early Friday morning, MPD Officer Anthony Morris was flagged down by a woman near American Way and Cherry.

Morris was led over to a car where a woman in the rear seat was in labor.

As the officer helped deliver the child, he noticed the umbilical cord was wrapped around its neck.

With the assistance of police and fire dispatch, Officer Morris was able to untangle the chord and the child is doing well.
