HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. - Dramatic video shows the moment a Florida deputy successfully delivered a baby boy in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven convenience store.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office posted video of the miraculous moment on Facebook.
On August 17 around 5:30 a.m., dispatchers received a 911 call from a man who was in the 7-Eleven parking lot located at Hwy 60 and Dover Road. The caller said his wife was in labor and he did not think they would make it to the hospital.
Deputies arrived, including Deputy Jordan Ream who helped coach the mother through the delivery.
"Mom and baby were transported to the hospital and are doing great. The father can be seen in the video expressing his thanks to Deputy Ream for his quick actions.
"I was about to lose my mind," the new dad said. "All the stuff I've been through in my life, I've never been through that."
"Neither have I!," said Deputy Ream.
Sheriff Chad Chronister couldn't be more proud of his team.
