A Washington State Patrol trooper helped deliver a baby on the side of a highway on Mother’s Day.

Trooper John Bryant tweeted the Tuesday after, telling the story of Trooper Travis Cunningham and baby Luke.

Trooper Bryant said Luke just wouldn’t hold on for the ambulance, so Trooper Cunningham and Luke’s dad, Joseph, delivered him on SR 153, south of Twisp. Luke was born at 6:39 a.m on Mother’s Day, of all days.

Trooper Bryant says Mom, Dad, and Luke are doing great.
