Princeton, WV — It must have been a heartbreaking sight during a routine traffic stop — a baby in the backseat, covered in vomit.

But no worries, because West Virginia state troopers knew just what to do.

The baby was found after troopers pulled over a suspected drunk driver earlier this week in Princeton, Lt. Michael Baylous told CNN affiliate WCHS.

Since the 1-year-old was drenched in vomit, the child was taken back to headquarters. There, trooper D.C Graham cleaned the child up in a sink, wrapping the baby in a towel and watching over until officials from child protective services showed up.

The child, who troopers suspect had been sick for awhile, looks pleased as punch during the sink bath at headquarters.

The baby is now with a legal guardian; the driver faces DUI charges.

    This poor child was born unto white trash. Its a real good thing this tot learned the basics of human compassion and respect, with a Trooper. Lucky kid. The childs “white trash” parents are obvious. Finally a non racist article on WNEP.
