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.
Both are doing fine, the Ada County Sheriff's Office says.
