VIDEO: Colorado Police Chief Delivers Daughter on Side of Road
Chief Joey Staufer of the Eagle (Colo.) Police Department called 911 just after 2 a.m. after his wife went into labor near the Gypsum exit on Interstate 70. The dispatcher, Kelly Klein, helped Staufer through the delivery, the Vail Public Safety Communications Center said in a news release.
Once paramedics arrived, the mother and baby girl were taken to a hospital and both are reported to be doing well.
Klein will receive a pink "stork" pin and have his name inscribed on a plaque in the communications center.
