A routine traffic stop reunited a New Jersey state trooper with the now-retired police officer who helped his mother deliver him as an infant.
Trooper Michael Patterson had stopped the motorist, Matthew Bailly, for a minor motor vehicle violation on Friday, when Bailly told him that he was a retired officer from the Piscataway Police Department, according to a statement by New Jersey State Police.
The retired officer told Patterson he knew the street because 27 years ago he helped deliver a baby on that street. "He goes as far as describing the house that I grew up in and then he said the baby's name was Michael, so I extended my hand and said - sir - my name is Michael Patterson, thanks for helping to deliver me", he said.
The experience had stayed with Mr Bailly to the extent that he was able to describe details of the house, and even recalled the baby's name - Michael. "Thank you for delivering me".

'Well' Melania Trump makes first public appearance in a month
Despite the operation's routine nature, Melania remained there for five days, returning to the White House on 19 May. Her presence at the hurricane event outside the White House has prompted a proper storm on social media.
A Facebook post about the chance meeting has amassed nearly 9,000 shares but the main question on people's minds was - did Mr Patterson issue Mr Bailly a ticket?
He did not get a ticket.
The two men talked some more and figured out that it was Bailly who brought the future-trooper into the world 27 years ago.
Bailly responded to a call that Patterson's mother, Karen Patterson, barely made it home after going into labor while out shopping. The date was October 5, 1991.
