Indiana Police Help with Unexpected Delivery of a Baby in a Mini-Van
Two Kokomo, Indiana police officers had the surprise of their careers Sunday afternoon.
I don't know if two rare incidents within 11 days constitutes a trend. However, it may be the beginning of one. That unusual trend is women giving birth on the side of the road in the Midwest. On April 1st a young couple had a baby on the shoulder of I-96 in Grand Rapids. See that full story here. Then about 3 hours South and eleven days later another baby hit the road. OK, that could've been worded better.
On Sunday, April 11th, 2021 two Kokomo police officers were responding to another call when a small child sprung from a nearby mini-van and ran toward officers Samantha Raber and Gabrielle Uhrin. He let them know that his mother was giving birth at that very moment according to the facebook post from the Kokomo Police Department,
The officers immediately sprung into action and went to the mini-van. The officers discovered a female in active labor. The officers immediately called for a medic.
They clearly didn't have time to wait for the medics. So, the officers rolled up their sleeves and helped deliver the baby. When the medics arrived they took the baby and mother to the hospital. There's no report on the name or gender of the new Hoosier at this time. The report does tell us that both mother and baby are doing fine.
