CROOKS, S.D. (AP) - A former amateur baseball player says delivering his fourth child was both scary and amazing.

Dallas Schneiderman delivered his daughter, Pippon Marie Schneiderman, Jan. 12 on a bathroom floor at the family’s home, the Argus Leader (https://argusne.ws/2jglPtx ) reported. Schneiderman delivered the 8-pound, 10 ounce baby after his wife, Janna Schneiderman, went into labor.

“She was like, ‘We’re not going anywhere. This is happening right now’,” Dallas Schneiderman said. “I was like, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me.’ It’s actually a good thing we didn’t make it to the car. That would’ve been a disaster.”

Minnehaha County Deputy Chansey Ford was the first to arrive on the scene after receiving the 911 call and helped with the home delivery.

“I’ve been in law enforcement for almost nine years and I always get asked what’s the coolest thing I’ve ever done,” Ford said. “And this is now definitely at the top. It was one of the scariest but also most amazing things I’ve ever done.”

Dallas Schneiderman, who played baseball for the Renner Monarchs, delivered the baby no more than 15 minutes after his wife’s water broke.

“I’m sure delivering his own baby and witnessing all of that was not on his bucket list,” Janna said of her husband. “It was definitely scary, but it was also kind of funny and, when it was over, pretty amazing. It wasn’t until it was all over and he was tying off the umbilical cord when I kind of realized how cool it was that Dallas was able to make sure everything went OK.”

Paramedics arrived shortly after the birth to take Schneiderman’s wife and child to the hospital.
