PLANT CITY, Fla. — Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Master Deputy Daniel “Red” Jones is no stranger to helping deliver babies on the side of the road.
For the third time in his career, Jones helped a woman deliver her baby on the side of Highway 60 in Plant City.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, a driver approached Jones in a panic, stating his wife was about to give birth. Bodycam video shows Jones springing into action without hesitation and helping the mom on the side of the road. It wasn’t long before a healthy baby girl was born.
“I am extremely proud of Master Deputy Jones’ quick actions and dedication to serving our community in any capacity,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “This is his third time assisting a citizen with delivering a baby! While delivering in the front seat of a car was not the original birth plan, Master Deputy Jones reassured the mother of six that she was in good hands. I wish mom, dad and their new baby girl all the joy and happiness. Congratulations!”
