BOSTON, N.Y. (AP) — A sheriff’s deputy in western New York has delivered his own son in the back seat of the family vehicle after his wife went into labor while they were driving to a hospital.

Eric and Kelly Szkatulkski (skuh-TUHL’-skee) were en route to a Buffalo hospital from their home south of the city Monday night when she began to give birth in the vehicle. Eric, a deputy with the Erie County Sheriff’s Office, pulled over to the side of the road.

The deputy helped his wife give birth in the back seat to their 8-pound, 5-ounce boy. The couple named him Eli. The parents and their new baby eventually made it to the hospital. Mother and baby are said to be doing fine.

Eli is the couple’s third son.
