SILVERHILL, Alabama (WALA) – Baby Genesis Johnson has already made her mark, with the help of a Silverhill cop, who answered the unforgettable call she was born.
“The baby was coming, whether someone was ready or not,Said Agent Mike Allen.
In his more than 20 years of law enforcement experience, the call of duty has taken him to a place he had never been before.
“When I told them I had to push, he walked through the door and said ‘let’s start’,” said Brianna Mckenzie.
The officer found Mckenzie in labor inside his bathroom.
“It literally took me maybe 2 or 3 pushes and she was there.”
Mckenzie had felt contractions for several days, but didn’t realize how close they were.
The pain became more severe in the early morning hours of May 24.
Mckenzie woke her fiancé, Michael Johnson, and told him to call 911 before rushing to the bathroom.
“The moment I sat down and crouched down I felt some pressure there and he came back over there to watch me and at that point he said he saw a head, so I was like “oh gosh! “So we got 911 on the phone.
Officer Allen got the call, just in time for baby Genesis’ surprise arrival.
“I put the baby on the towel, opened the airways, and gave the baby to the mother,” Constable Allen said.
He says everything he learned about childbirth in his training took hold.
“You fall back on the training you learned in the lessons and I hope you will remember it.”
In his classes, he has helped deliver 75 plastic babies over the years, But Genesis was his first real one.
“I’m glad he’s the person here because he was really, really great. I would strongly recommend that she give birth to another baby if necessary.
The beautiful, healthy baby girl was born at 6:45 a.m. on May 24, weighing 6 pounds. and 4 oz.
Baby Genesis is the perfect addition to his family, joining mom, dad and twin siblings.
