A baby in Smyrna just could not wait to get to the hospital and came into the world with the help of a 911 dispatcher.
On Tuesday morning, Joshua Hendricks called 911 to say his wife Virginia had gone into labor. They were stuck in traffic on Ridge Road near Atlanta Road after his wife said the baby's head was on its way out.
Communications officer Tammy Morrical calmly told the dad to pull over. You can hear the mother screaming with labor pains during the call. Morrical sent an ambulance to the couple, then told Joshua to find blankets, or something to use, and walked him through the steps of the delivery.
With the help of Morrical, Joshua delivered the little baby girl before the ambulance could get to the scene. You can hear the baby crying in the background of the 911 call.
Both mom and baby were taken to the hospital and are reportedly doing just fine.
