California Police Deliver Baby Girl on the Side of Highway

The baby girl was born healthy.

A baby in has been safely delivered into the world on the side of a California road, thanks to police.

Lilianna Alamillo, the mother of the child, said she was very nervous once she realized the baby was coming and they wouldn't make it to the hospital.

"God, please send someone — I was worried about the baby," Alamillo told KCBS. "If they had not been there, I don't know what would have happened."

The baby’s father, Alan Lopez, who was in the driver's seat, was also nervous during the ordeal.

"She started screaming at me, 'Call 911!'" Lopez said.

California Highway Patrol officers Kyle Beidermann and Richard Yerba arrived on the scene to help deliver the couple’s baby girl. The impromptu delivery was captured on the officers’ dash camera.

The delivery happened on what was Yerba’s last day of training.  

"It was an amazing experience, and something I never thought I'd be able to do in my training,” Yerba said.

Officers got to meet baby Mia for the second time during a press conference at police headquarters.

"You sign up for this job to help others," Yerba said. "It didn't take me long to enjoy something so joyful."
