A Kuna police officer says she used her training as a dispatcher to help with an emergency baby delivery Monday night.
Crystal Graves responded to a home in the Deer Flat-Linder Road area shortly before midnight, moments after paramedics arrived. The birth had complications so paramedics asked Graves to help, the Ada County Sheriff's Office says.
"It was a real neat experience to go through that in person, especially after hearing more than a few of those calls in dispatch," Graves said. She left her job in dispatch earlier this year and became a patrol officer.
Sheriff's Deputy Jason Piccola drove the ambulance so paramedics could work on the mother and her new son on the way to the hospital.
Never miss a local story.
Both are doing fine, the Ada County Sheriff's Office says.
