West Valley City Police Officer Helps Deliver Baby Along 3100 South
WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah – An officer with the West Valley City Police Department was being thanked for his quick actions after helping a family deliver a baby in the middle of a busy road.
Officials said officer Jeremy Dean was driving along 3100 South on Tuesday when the car in front of him suddenly stopped.
The driver jumped out of his car and flagged Dean down, saying his wife was pregnant and the baby wasn’t going to wait to be born in a hospital.
Dean, a four-year-veteran with WVCPD, grabbed some gloves and jumped into action, helping deliver the baby girl in the middle of the road.
A West Valley City Fire Department crew showed up shortly thereafter and helped get mom and her baby to a local hospital.
Dean said he has kids of his own, but this was a first for him.
“Great job today to Officer Dean for his quick actions to help this family,” officials said in a tweet. “We wish them the best of luck with their brand new baby.”
