School secretary delivers baby in school parking lot

DAYTON, OH (WDTN/CNN) - The secretary at a Dayton school assisted in the birth of a former student.

The young woman gave birth to a baby girl inside of her car while in the parking lot of the school.

The school secretary at Horizon Science Academy was given instructions from a 911 dispatcher and assisted Jessica Flores, 20, with the birth.

Crews were dispatched but were involved in an unrelated incident. The Harrison Township fire chief Mark Lynch made the call to the school and waited until an ambulance arrived.

"You hope for the best and deliver a breathing baby with two legs, two arms, 10 fingers and 10 toes," Lynch said.
