Posted: October 23, 2013 - 12:54pm  |  Updated: October 24, 2013 - 12:09am

A Juneau dispatcher helped talk a father through his baby’s delivery at the Best Western on Wednesday morning.

Police said the father-to-be called 911 at about 10:13 a.m. reporting that his wife was in active labor at the hotel.

The dispatcher provided the man instructions over the phone, and a healthy baby boy was delivered at approximately 10:18 a.m.

“Capital City Fire Rescue arrived on scene as the baby was being delivered and found the mother and baby were doing well and in good health,” Juneau Police Department spokeswoman Erann Kalwara said, adding they did not have to be taken to the hospital. “Congratulations to the parents on the newest addition to their family!”
