GOOD NEWS Arizona Trooper Helps Deliver Baby on Roadside
An Arizona trooper's traffic stop was interrupted last weekend by a woman who was about to give birth.
Miguel Rincon had just pulled someone over for speeding when another driver behind pulled up and told him that her granddaughter was in labor, he told FOX10.
Rincon, a seven-year veteran with the state’s Department of Public Safety, immediately requested an ambulance and dashed to grab blankets and gloves from his patrol car.
But when the trooper ran back to the woman, he discovered that the baby had already been born. So he helped tuck the newborn boy into a blanket.
Courtney Benavidez, the new mom, named her son Carter Jett, in reference to the speed of his birth, according to the Associated Press.
“I was just in shock, and I couldn't believe it,” Benavidez told the AP. “I think I went pale.”
DPS officials say both she and the baby are now doing well back at home. See more on the story, here.
