LUKEVILLE, Ariz. (AP) - Federal authorities at the southern Arizona border have helped deliver a baby.

A 27-year-old woman went into labor Wednesday while trying to enter the country through the Port of Lukeville.

A short time later, she successfully gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

Ajo Ambulance was notified, but the Tohono O’odham tribal member went into labor and required the assistance of U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers medically trained as EMTs.

The officers assessed the woman and determined she would probably deliver prior to the ambulance’s arrival.

Once the woman gave birth, she and her newborn son were taken to a hospital in Phoenix.

The woman’s name hasn’t been released.
