Lieutenant helps deliver a baby during an escort to the hospital
During the early morning hours of Saturday, June 25, 2022, several APD supervisors encountered a mother and father rushing to the hospital to deliver their baby.
Officers initially attempted to escort the family, using their lights and siren to get them there quickly, but the couple soon stopped when they realized they were not going to make it.
A veteran APD Lieutenant was riding in the patrol vehicle and immediately began assisting the parents. Despite the urgency of the situation, the lieutenant remained calm and guided the couple through the process. The baby was delivered only moments later.
The family did an outstanding job, especially mom, and we are extremely happy for them and their new baby boy. A special thank you to our lieutenant for the assistance he provided in such a calm manner. We are proud of his work.
