CLOVIS, Texas (AP) — After responding to a number of weather-related problems, a police chief in a small Texas town got a different kind of call: A stranded woman was about to give birth.
The Clovis News Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1UeYbcN ) that Farwell police chief Larry Kelsay spent the weekend pulling cars from snowdrifts, helping people find shelter and dealing with damaged cause by the blizzard.
Then, at about 1 a.m. Monday, a Farwell woman called police and said she was about to give birth. The town doesn't have a hospital and the roads were closed.
Kelsay called paramedic Weldon Kube and drove him to the women's home. A second paramedic, Craig Giesbrecht, joined them there.
Kelsay says it was an easy birth. The baby was born at about 3:30 a.m.
