DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – A mother is thanking a quick-thinking sheriff to helping to deliver her baby in a parking lot when there was no time to make to the delivery room.

Sheriff Mike Chitwood was in the lobby at Halifax Health Hospital in Daytona Beach, Florida when someone ran inside the lobby saying, “She’s having a baby!”

A soon-to-be mother was in the car, and there was no time to make it inside the hospital. According to a post shared by the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office a nurse ran out with him.

The sheriff helped the nurses successfully deliver the baby.

“Welcome to the world baby Heidi!” wrote the police department.
