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 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.
