On July 15, 2017, at approximately 00:25am, Kalamazoo Public Safety Officers responded to 200 W South St, Bronson Park for a medical rescue. A citizen was on her way to Bronson hospital when her water broke and she began to give birth. The driver pulled over on W South St and several officers responded to assist with the medical call.
KDPS Sgt Kristie Hofer was one of the first officers to arrive and recognized the female was having contractions and the head of the baby was beginning to “crown”. Sgt Hofer and PSO Fountain delivered the healthy baby boy as Life Paramedics arrived. The mother and father of the newborn baby were transported to the hospital by Life. Kalamazoo Public Safety would like to extend our best wishes to the Baker family on the birth of their healthy baby boy.
