Surprise Delivery: Officers Help Deliver Baby in Bucks County

6 photos
Matt and Jennifer Diaz were enroute to the hospital Thursday night to deliver their son, but their baby had a different idea. A quick moving labor forced the couple to pull over into a parking lot of a Bucks County diner to deliver their son in the front seat of their car. But, the pair had a little help bringing baby Jace into the world from Bucks County Police.

At 11:28 on Thursday, Bedminster Township Police Officer Robert Compton, assisted by Chief Ryan Lehman of the Dublin Boro Police Department, responded to a call of a woman in labor. It was in the parking lot the officers helped Matt and Jennifer deliver the baby boy "roadside."

Officer Compton and Officer Lehman stopped by to visit baby Jace once the family made it to the hospital. BTPD thanked the family for allowing them to share the adorable photos on their Facebook page.

Baby and parents are back at home enjoying time together with big brother Bentley, who is excited to eventually play flag football with Jace. Congratulations!
