Off-Duty Border Patrol Agent George Huertas was with his family in the Miracle Babies Superhero 5K in San Diego when he was called upon to help deliver a miracle baby.
Huertas is a member of the Border Patrol Search, Trauma, and Rescue (BORSTAR) team in San Diego. He is also a trained EMT.
While he was preparing to leave the charity event with his family, Huertas's sister alerted him that a woman was giving birth in the public restroom at Liberty Station.
Huertas immediately stepped in to assist the woman, grabbing a pair of rubber gloves from a janitor and making the best of the less-than-ideal situation. With Huertas's help, the woman gave birth to a baby boy.
According to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol,
Using his EMT training, Agent Huertas was able to stimulate the child and initiate breathing. He wrapped the baby up with one of his sister's baby blankets. And after cleaning the baby boy's face, he introduced the child to his mother for the first time.
He remained with the mother and baby until emergency responders arrived on the scene.
Acting Commander of the San Diego BORSTAR, Michael E. McEwan, said of Huertas,
George responds to those in need on and off duty. He is a strong advocate for those under his care. He truly embodies what it means to be a BORSTAR Agent and lives our moniker ‘So Others May Live.'
