When two Eagan police officers responded to a home in Eagan last week, they found a mother in labor sitting in a bathtub, Fox 9 reported.
Aaron Machtemes, an officer with five years at the department, had taken an EMT course in the past, and his training came in handy. The baby was born with an umbilical cord around his neck and was no movement.
"I kind of started rubbing the back and kind of tapping the back, and some of the fluids came out," Machtemes told Fox 9. "Hugh Curry, the other officer, came in with one of the bulb suctions and suctioned the baby's mouth, and that time, the baby started to breathe a little bit, which was a huge sigh of relief."
The baby, named Isak, and his family (identified only as the Morcks) are home and doing well.
