Oakland Police Deliver A Baby At A Gas Station

OAKLAND — (CBS SF) — A panicking father-to-be flagged down Oakland police officers at a gas station on Golf Links Road, Friday night. His wife was in labor.

Officers looked inside the man’s car and saw woman in the late stages of labor. The officers summoned medical help, but the baby arrived before the paramedics. The officers successfully delivered the baby — a 7 pound 9 ounce baby boy.

The mother and baby were transported to a local hospital. The officers went to check on the new family later and reported all were doing well.
