ATLANTA — An Atlanta Police Lieutenant helped a family deliver a baby boy in the early hours of Saturday June 25.
Several Atlanta police supervisors encountered a mother and father rushing to the hospital to deliver their baby.
Officers 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 police 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,” police officials said in a social media post.
