VIDEO: Calif. Officer Delivers Baby at Gas Station
A Simi Valley, Calif., police officer and his Explorer Scout ride-a-long delivered a baby girl at a 76 gas station Saturday, KABC reports.
The incident unfolded after dispatchers received a 911 call indicating that a woman went into labor on the way to Kaiser Hospital around 2 p.m.
She didn't have enough time to make it to the hospital so the family exited the freeway, pulled into the gas station near Stearns and Bernard streets, and dialed 911.
Police officer Kyle Crocker and his Explorer Scout ride-a-long Kyle Hunter were nearby.
"We just wanted to get there as quickly as we could," said Crocker. "At the same time, I'm secretly hoping that we do not beat fire and ambulance."
