Sheriff's Deputies Deliver Baby Boy in Parking Lot After Parents Couldn't Make It to Hospital
Little John William Perry was born in the sheriff's office parking lot Sunday morning with the help of two deputies and a call to 911 dispatchers.
Law enforcement officers are prepared to respond to all sorts of emergency situations, but it was a first for these Florida deputies, who helped birth a baby boy in the middle of their headquarters' parking lot.
Little John William Perry was born in the Alachua County Sheriff's Office parking lot Sunday morning with the help of two deputies and a call to 911 dispatchers after his parents "didn't think they could make it to the hospital," sheriff's office spokesman Art Forgey told InsideEdition.com.
They intended to call an ambulance after they pulled into the parking lot, which was on their way to the hospital, when deputies Chris Privette and Sam Caouette showed up to check out the commotion.
The group called 911, and telecommunicator Madeline Knight helped walk the deputies through the delivery procedure.
"Our telecommunicators are trained in emergency medical dispatch," Forgey said.
Within minutes, John was born. He is the mother's fourth child.
An ambulance arrived shortly later to bring the mother and baby to the hospital, where they were reported to be doing well.
"[The deputies] had no experience. They probably don't want to ever again," Forgey joked.
