Suburban cop helps deliver surprise baby


The Associated Press


CARROLLTON, Texas -- A suburban Dallas police officer ended up playing midwife to one mother in labor. 


Gene Kimpton says he entered a home in Carrollton Wednesday morning with his weapon drawn. All he knew is there was some sort of emergency situation in the house. 


There was. 


A young boy pointed Kimpton into the bathroom, where his mother -- who hadn't realized she was pregnant -- was in labor. 


Kimpton helped guide the baby boy out and wrapped him in a towel until paramedics arrived and cut the umbilical cord. 


Police say the mother and child are resting comfortably at an area hospital.
