RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - As a firefighter, Jeremy Roberts is used to getting quickly from Point A to Point B.

Still, he wasn’t quite quick enough Saturday for his daughter, Adeline.

She was born in the front seat of Roberts’ truck as the firefighter and his wife were heading to Loma Linda University Medical Center in Murrieta, California.

When it became clear Adeline wasn’t going to wait, Roberts pulled over and used his paramedic training to deliver her.

It was about 4:15 a.m. when the firefighter’s wife first said it was time to head to the hospital.

Parents and baby did eventually get there, but as a trio.

Riverside Fire Department Capt. Tyler Reynolds says Roberts, his wife, Kirsten, Adeline and her brother, Hudson, are all “doing great.”
