Jefferson Parish deputy helps deliver baby
TERRYTOWN, La. - Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand says a deputy delivered a baby girl who was named after her - even though the mother already had chosen a different name.
Normand didn't release the mother's name or the baby's family name, but says little Emily Victoria was named after Deputy Emily Brinser.
He says in a news release that the 33-year-old mother had called 911 for an ambulance Saturday, but her baby was arriving as the deputy arrived.
He says the mother and Emily Victoria were taken to West Jefferson General Hospital, where doctors said both mother and 7-pound, 6-ounce girl were in good health.
