A Clark County sheriff’s deputy helped deliver a baby Tuesday at a gas station in Brush Prairie.
Deputy Melissa Sager was called to the Shell station at Northeast 119th Street and 117th Avenue to help a woman who was in labor, according to a Clark County Sheriff’s Office news release.
First responders hadn’t arrived yet when Sager reached the gas station.
She “immediately moved in to assist the mother. The mom gave birth to a healthy baby boy in the front seat of the family’s SUV,” the news release says.
Sager reportedly cleared the baby’s airway, wrapped him up and handed him back to his mother. The mother and baby were taken to a hospital for further care.
