New Jersey State Police deliver baby on Garden State Parkway.

HILLSIDE TWP., N.J. (WPVI) -- Two New Jersey State Troopers helped a woman deliver a baby girl on the Garden State Parkway and the delivery was caught on dashcam video.

Police say at 4:14 a.m. Monday, the expecting mother was being driven to the hospital by her husband when they realized they were not going to make it on time.

The couple stopped on the shoulder in Hillside Township and dialed 911.

Troopers Alex Muro and Arnaldo Mateo arrived on scene.

They found the mom-to-be already in labor in the backseat of the car.

In the video, the troopers can be heard telling the mom to 'breathe' and 'keep going.'

Moments later they announce, "It's a girl!"

The mother and her baby daughter were transported by ambulance to the hospital where they were last reported as doing well.
