Father delivers baby inside family car
Fire dispatcher helps via cellphone
LAKE LOS ANGELES, Calif.—Noah couldn’t wait to make his grand entrance at a hospital, like most babies. His father delivered him inside the family car en route to Antelope Valley Hospital, a Los Angeles County sheriff’s lieutenant said.
Deputies responded to 15th Street and Avenue M, in Lake Los Angeles about 11 p.m. Sunday to assist Los Angeles County firefighters after Noah’s father delivered the boy, Lt. Richard Daniels of the sheriff’s Lancaster Station said.
A Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatcher acted as the father’s coach via cellphone, said Dispatch Supervisor Robert Diaz.
“We keep proceeding with our steps,” Diaz said. “Our instructions help get them through it.”
Noah was the couple’s third baby.
"Usually the more children they have, the quicker the birthing process,” Diaz said.
There were no cheers or “high fives” in the dispatch center after Noah was delivered, the supervisor said. The dispatcher who coached the father went right back to work.
