U.S. Border Patrol Helps Mom Give Birth

U.S. Customs and Border Protection

Short & Sweet

Late Saturday night, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers on the Mexico/Texas border got a special delivery: a bouncing baby boy. Ana Suez Rey, of Presidio, Texas, unexpectedly went into labor and gave birth while crossing back into the United States. Well, that's a birth story that will not soon be forgotten.

The Lowdown

The 28-year-old mom-to-be knew the baby was coming and asked for an ambulance as soon as she and her friend ran up to the checkpoint, but the baby wasn't waiting. He was on a mission to come out, and there was no stopping him.

Less than seven minutes after officers escorted Ana Rey's vehicle to the secondary inspection area and helped her out of the vehicle, baby Derrick Rey arrived in the world. We'll bet the U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers on duty that night never dreamt that they'd be welcoming the newest citizen to the world that night.

The Upshot

The good thing is that Ana Rey made it back into the United States before giving birth because it could've been a citizenship nightmare in the making. Mom and baby are both back home safe and sound in the U.S.
