She knew the 20-year-old’s pains were coming fast and furious. But as Johnson talked to a 911 dispatcher, she never imaged that Michelle was about to get birth right there on the bathroom floor because it was more than two months ahead of Michelle’s due date.
“I called 911 and when I was talking to the 911 dispatcher, the baby just came out,” Johnson told KMBC’s Martin Augustine.
Kansas City Police Officer Steve Downing and his partner, Officer Annamarie Occhipinto, were rushing to Johnson’s side about 12:45 a.m. Monday. Johnson handed the baby to the officers.
“I handed her the baby. I had scooped him up and put him in a towel and I handed him to her,” Johnson said.
