State Trooper helps family deliver baby boy

DPS State Trooper Joe Morris responded to a call about an woman in labor and delivered a baby at a gas station.

BURLESON COUNTY, Texas -- A State Trooper helped deliver a baby boy on Saturday. 

Trooper Joe Morris was responding to a call about a woman in labor headed for a College Station hospital.

But she didn't make it to the hospital.

Instead, Trooper Morris met the family at the Exxon gas station off of FM 50 in Burleson County.

Together, he and the dad helped deliver a healthy baby boy.

"It was pretty humbling because you can see how things can change so quickly and in such big ways. It's always neat if you get experience seeing a baby being born, a new life being brought into the world," Morris said.

 The Trooper met the family on Sunday at the hospital.

Mom and the son are well and will be released soon.
