    Officers make special delivery on Labor Day

    Two Modesto policemen spent part of their Labor Day assisting a woman in labor, helping her deliver a healthy baby boy in a parked car just one block from the hospital.

    "I've been out on 'shots fired' calls, no problem," said officer Steve Anderson, an eight-year veteran of the department. "But this one actually made me a little shaky.

    "I've never seen anything like it," he said of witnessing the birth.

    Anderson and officer Ben Kroutil were on patrol and had stopped at McHenry and Orangeburg avenues when a man across the intersection jumped out of his car to flag them down.

    "I rolled my window down and he said, 'My wife's having a baby,' " Anderson said. "He was frantic."

    Brenda Resendes, 26, had started feeling contractions about 9:20 a.m. after being due to give birth the day before. Monday, she took a hot shower and made herself special tea to help speed delivery. Her last birth, said husband Jose Blanco, had taken 12 hours. She told him she didn't want to go through that again.

    The home remedies worked better than expected. The couple headed for Doctors Medical Center just before 11 a.m. as the contractions grew closer.

    "He's going to come out, he's going to come out," Resendes told her husband during the trip.

    "Hold on," Blanco told her. "We're going to make it."

    Resendes told him she was afraid the baby was going to die. Blanco sped north, looking for the hospital.

    "Is it on Roseburg?" he asked.

    "No, keep going!" she told him.

    Stopped at a red light on Orangeburg, Blanco said, his wife pulled down her pants. By the time the light turned green, the baby was halfway out. Blanco spotted the police and started honking. He got out and started waving.

    The officers told Blanco to drive to the nearby Chevron. As they pulled into the parking lot, Kroutil pulled on rubber gloves.

    The police opened the passenger door and saw Resendes in the fully reclined seat. She was "panicky and scared," holding in her hands the head and shoulders of Jesus.

    "All that was left was the ankles," Kroutil said. The baby was born moments later. Anderson cleared Jesus' airway with his gloved finger. Kroutil rubbed Jesus' tiny chest to stimulate his breathing. Blanco, 31, took off his shirt to clean and wrap the baby.

    Engine 5, from the Modesto Fire Department, arrived soon afterward. Fire personnel gave Blanco scissors so he could cut his son's umbilical cord. They gave Blanco a shirt. As he put it on, the impact of what had happened hit him.

    "That's when it all set in, and I started crying," Blanco said Tuesday, sitting on the edge of a hospital bed as his wife held their baby in a rocking chair. The couple's 6-year-old daughter, Xitlali, sat on Blanco's lap.

    "I'm just grateful to the firefighters and police," he said. "If it wasn't for them, I really wouldn't have known what to do."

    Resendes and her son were taken by ambulance to Doctors Medical Center. Jesus weighed in at 7 pounds 13 ounces, and medical staff said he was healthy. The two likely will be released from the hospital this morning.

    The officers appeared nearly as awed by the birth as Jesus' parents, shaking their heads outside the hospital as they described the experience. After the birth, they went to Target and bought Jesus some outfits, including clothes decorated with police cars and firetrucks.

    "I just feel like I instantly bonded with them, holding their newborn baby," said Kroutil, whose wife had a baby girl two months ago. "I showed them pictures of my daughter to try to calm them down. I just feel really attached to that family. It was a good day."

    It is not that bad, as long as everything comes out smoothly. I had 3 deliveries while on Patrol, one the baby came before EMS arrived, we just put the baby on the mother's lap and waited for them to cut the umbilico cord. The second birth, luckily EMS got there as the baby was crowning. The third was a still born, that was a bad one. Years ago, EMS used to give out Stork pins afterwards. It is not as messy as you think, the messy part comes afterwards, by that time you let EMS or the doctors handle it.
