Victor and Courtney Velazquez thought time was on their side when their doctor told them they had a few hours before their son was going to come. Courtney was having contractions, but the couple listened and drove back to their house.
Upon their arrival, Courtney immediately went into labor. Victor knew she wasn’t going to make it to the hospital in time to give birth there.
So, he had to deliver his son by himself.
He called the police and ended up getting a lot of help from a 911 dispatcher during the frightening scenario.
A 911 dispatcher named Monica Deason picked up and talked Victor through all the steps he needed to take.
In the video below, posted on October 18, 2017, Victor explains: “Once those things were pretty clear, to be honest, I just caught him… By the time I saw that head come out, I told the lady to hold on and I just caught him.”
Monica got the chance to meet the baby boy she helped the couple deliver. You have to see her reaction!
Check out how their baby boy is doing now in the video below, and please SHARE if you think Monica is a real hero for helping out in this situation!
