U.S. Customs Officers Help Deliver Baby at Texas-Mexico Border
Two U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers helped deliver a baby girl at a South Texas border, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
The mother, a 19-year-old U.S. citizen, was a passenger in a car Saturday at a bridge between Brownsville, Tex. and Matamoros, Mexico when the driver alerted the U.S. Customs and Border Protection that a baby was on its way.
With no time to wait for medical help, officers Jaime Padron and Marvin Prazelini helped deliver the baby, the Star-Telegram reported.
The agency said the mother and newborn are healthy.
