When deputies were called to a small dirt road for a suspicious truck blocking the road, and the distant screams of a woman, they were grateful the outcome would be so positive.

It turns out, the truck had gotten stuck in a ditch on the road while a husband rushed to take his pregnant wife to a nearby hospital to give birth, according to El Dorado County sheriff’s officials.

The couple, identified as Alicia and Josiah, according to deputies, were on the way to a mid-wife's home because "it was time."

It’s A Girl!
Eleanor Rose, 7 pounds 4 ounces, was born at 4am this morning. Deputies who helped free the mid-wife’s truck from the ditch had the pleasure of meeting Eleanor and her proud parents Alicia and Josiah. Alicia and Josiah were on their way to the hospital last night when they had to make a pit stop at the mid-wife’s house because “it was time”. Eleanor was welcomed into the world a short time later. We are so happy to say that Alicia and Eleanor are both doing great and are enjoying some family time back at home.

Yesterday at 6:01am · 
Saturday night our Deputies were dispatched to a call of a suspicious vehicle blocking a small dirt road. When Deputies arrived they found the vehicle stopped with its lights on, however, could not find anyone nearby. Within a few seconds they could hear a woman screaming from a nearby residence. The Deputies ran to the house to find a pregnant woman who was ready to give birth. It turned out the vehicle that was stuck belonged to a mid-wife who got stuck while responding to the residence to help the woman who was giving birth. Our Deputies ran back down the hill and with a team effort lifted the vehicle free. Mom and mid-wife were sent safely on their way.
