Suburban Dallas cop helps deliver surprise baby

Updated:

CARROLLTON, Texas (AP) - A suburban Dallas police officer ended up playing midwife to one mother in labor.
    
Gene Kimpton says he entered a home in Carrollton Wednesday morning with his weapon drawn. All he knew is there was some sort of emergency situation in the house.
    
There was.
    
A young boy pointed Kimpton into the bathroom, where his mother - who hadn't realized she was pregnant - was in labor.
    
Kimpton helped guide the baby boy out and wrapped him in a towel until paramedics arrived and cut the umbilical cord.
    
Police say the mother and child are resting comfortably at an area hospital.
