DENVER — A Colorado police chief helped deliver his own daughter after calling 911 from an interstate off-ramp.

The Denver Post reports a dispatcher walked Eagle Police Chief Joey Staufer through the delivery in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Emergency responders arrived and took mom, Vio, and daughter to the hospital.

The newborn girl is said to be doing well.

Vail police dispatcher Kelly Klein said in a news release that situations like this one are why he got into emergency services.

His name will be inscribed on a plaque at the communications center and he is being given a pink stork ribbon in recognition of his efforts.
