Destiny Hall and her husband, Caleb, were speeding to the hospital on the morning of July 18, ABC News reports.

On their way, Deputy Constable Mark Diebold flagged the couple down and offered to escort them to the hospital. He led the way, with his lights flashing and sirens blaring.

Soon, Destiny realized baby girl Joy Deborah wasn’t going to wait any longer. The couple pulled into a gas station parking lot, followed by Diebold, who was there to help deliver the baby and clear her airway so she could breathe.

"This kind of gives me perspective of why I became a police officer," Diebold said, according to KDFW. "It was a positive moment and I will remember this for the rest of my life."
