Call a whaambulance! Cop assists with roadside baby delivery

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — An Alexandria police officer shifted gears from catching criminals to catching babies when he assisted with the roadside delivery of a baby boy.

Police say Officer Michael Garcia saw a car driving erratically Thursday morning on Duke Street and found a passenger in the late stages of delivery.

Less than a minute later, Garcia helped deliver a healthy baby boy.

Garcia then accompanied the woman and her family to the hospital, where mom and the baby boy, named Joshua, were doing well.

Police spokeswoman Crystal Nosal said the family was driving from Fort Washington, Maryland, to the hospital when Garcia spotted them.
