PLANT CITY, Fla. — Just before Mother’s Day, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Master Deputy Daniel “Red” Jones had a sweet reunion with a baby he helped deliver on the side of a highway.
The reunion happened Friday, nearly two weeks after Jones delivered baby Lexela on Highway 60 in Plant City, Fox News reports.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office shared photos of Jones holding the baby alongside the baby’s parents.
“No, her name is NOT Red, but “Little Red” is a cool nickname! What do y’all think?!” the sheriff’s office wrote in a Facebook post.
The baby’s birth was captured on Jones’ body-worn camera. It was the third time in his career he helped deliver a baby.
