A Florida deputy was in the right place at just the right time on Sunday when a panicked driver approached him on the side of a highway and said his wife was about to give birth.
Deputy Daniel Jones raced to help the mother, who was laying across the front seats of the car on the shoulder of the highway and the video from Daniels’ body camera showed the deputy providing encouragement and emotional support and even a little humor.
When it became clear that an ambulance would not reach the vehicle in time, officials said Jones used his training to ensure the safe delivery of the baby girl inside the car, his third time assisting a citizen with delivering a baby! He even suggested naming her "Red," after his own nickname. However, Dad Luis Lopez, says her name is Lexela Luis Lopez.
