A deputy and a trooper helped a woman give birth in a parking lot in Navasota, TX on Saturday.

Trooper Dylan Duke was assisting Grimes County Sheriff’s Deputy Steven Siracusa at a traffic stop when they overheard a police dispatch about a woman in labor at a gas station.

Trooper Duke drove immediately to the parking lot to assist the woman and her husband.

Deputy Siracusa arrived shortly after, and with the help of the Saint Joseph’s Hospital staff on the phone, they delivered the baby boy.

An ambulance arrived later and transported the family to the hospital.
