A Wisconsin woman who went into labor on the way to a hospital got some help from the mother of a bride at a nearby wedding party.

Ben Sherwood of New Berlin was driving his wife Kimberly to the hospital Saturday when she told him they wouldn't make it. They saw a police officer by the Milwaukee Art Museum and flagged him down.

Ben Sherwood tells WTMJ the officer had the same frightened look he had. So Ben turned to a nearby wedding party and starting yelling for a doctor.

A woman in a peach dress and high heels ran over. It was Annette Soborowicz, an emergency-room nurse.

A few pushes later and Soborowicz was holding little Lincoln Sherwood.

Soborowicz says it was an amazing day — the Sherwoods had a son and she gained a wonderful son-in-law.
