Master Deputy Daniel “Red” Jones was in for an unforeseen surprise during his shift. While carrying out his patrol duties on Highway 60 near Tampa, a distressed driver approached him, informing him that his wife was on the verge of giving birth. Reacting swiftly, as he had done twice before, Master Deputy Jones immediately took action, according to a press release from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
Working alongside the father, Master Deputy Daniel “Red” Jones assisted in the delivery process while they awaited the arrival of additional emergency responders. A video recorded on Red’s lapel camera documented the remarkable scene as he provided guidance and support to the mother, encouraging her to breathe. With Red’s assistance, the baby girl safely emerged into the world, prompting him to express joy at the beautiful sound of her initial breaths of fresh air.
