VIDEO: Hawaii Officer Delivers His Own Baby Daughter in Patrol Car
A Hawaii County police officer delivered his own baby girl on the side of a highway.
Officer Mario Ochoa, who is assigned to the Kona Patrol, was driving his wife Ryan to the hospital when she said the baby was coming.
"She was just having contractions, I said, well, if you feel like you gotta push, try to hold on," Officer Ochoa told Hawaii News Now.
But they were still 10 miles from the hospital. So officer Ochoa pulled over along Highway 190 in Waimea.
"It was pretty fast, I had enough time to put my gloves on, and she said, I gotta push, and there was the head," says Ochoa.

Great job Officer "Dad". Since she was a girl, perhaps you should name her "Waimea" after the road she was born on! You and your wife enjoy that little blessing.

Good job and a heck of a way to get a new car. I wish you all the best and be careful out there.
