Father delivers baby in family bathroom

CROOKS (AP) — A former amateur baseball player says delivering his fourth child was both scary and amazing.

The Argus Leader reports Dallas Schneiderman delivered his daughter, Pippon Marie Schneiderman, Jan. 12 on a bathroom floor. Schneiderman delivered the 8-pound, 10 ounce baby after his wife Janna Schneiderman went into labor at the family's home.

Minnehaha County Deputy Chansey Ford was the first to arrive on the scene after receiving the 911 call, and assisted with the in-home delivery.

The former baseball player delivered the baby no more than 15 minutes after his wife's water broke.

Paramedics arrived shortly after the birth to take Schneiderman's wife and child to the hospital.
