First responders must be prepared for anything when responding to a call.

Last week, a West Earl Township police officer in Lancaster County was dispatched to a home where he helped deliver a child.

“I’ve been a cop for five years and I’ve never given birth,” said officer Craig Johnson.

A few days before Josiah was born, his mother started having contractions.

“I thought it was my Braxton-Hicks, which are the fake contractions, until they started to get a little stronger,” Madison Gadsden said.

“That was it and I said, ‘We’re not going to the hospital,’ so I called 911,” said Terre Lewis, Josiah’s great-grandmother.

Johnson was on patrol a few minutes away.

“When he came here it calmed me down a lot because I was a little nervous because I know my grandma never gave birth,” Gadsden said.

Johnson is also a qualified emergency medical technician.

He cleared Josiah’s airway and kept him warm until an ambulance arrived.

“I know I helped deliver this lovely little bundle of joy, and he’s safe and happy, just like mom,” Johnson said.

Lewis thinks Josiah’s arrival is a sign of things to come.

“His name means fire from God and he came like fire, he really did, and I just think he’s going to have an incredible impact on this world. I believe him,” she said.

“I can’t wait to tell him the whole story when he gets older,” Gadsden said.
