Arizona woman gives birth with help of border agents
PHOENIX — Someone just couldn’t wait. An Arizona woman coming back from Mexico gave birth at Customs and Border Protection this week.
The federal agency said a 22-year-old woman’s baby boy arrived Tuesday at one of its offices at the Raul Hector Castro Port of Entry in Douglas. The mother had been on foot and left the walkway to ask them for help because she was in labor.
Agents brought her inside and called emergency services.
The baby, however, decided the time was now for his debut. Agents went to work bringing the little guy safely into the world.
Emergency personnel showed up afterward and took mom and baby to a hospital.
No other details were made available.
The Castro entryway is the second-largest commercial port in the state. Nearly 3 million cars and 2 million pedestrians crossed there in 2014.
