Talk about a special delivery.

A baby boy was delivered in the hallway of an apartment building in Newark, with help from a police officer and the stranger who flagged down the cop.

The baby entered the world earlier than anyone expected, and with a police escort.

The boy's mother ran out of her basement apartment on Mount Pleasant Avenue and into the hallway after she went into labor.

Police got a call of a woman needing help when Officer Vernon Bradbury from the Second Precinct arrived. He ran into the building, along with a stranger from the street. That Good Samaritan and Bradbury helped successfully deliver the baby in the hallway.

Mother and child were taken to University Hospital, where both are said to be doing well.
