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.
