Police dispatcher does it again

Police dispatcher Greg Martin helped deliver a premature valentine early last Monday morning. At 4:07 a.m. Martin received a call from a resident saying his wife was in labor and birth was imminent. Martin pulled out the Emergency Medical Dispatch handbook he had used last June in a similar emergency, and talked the father through the procedure. Everything happened so fast that little Max Cole arrived before medical and police personnel.

Max's parents are Elizabeth Ann Hughes and Geoffrey Cole of Old Quarry Drive. Cole said in a telephone interview on Wednesday, "It was pretty wild. Once in a lifetime delivering your own baby is quite enough for me. We're just glad that everything is okay."
