SAN LUIS, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY)- San Luis CBP Officers help deliver a baby and save a man from an apparent overdose over the weekend.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said a pregnant 24-year-old woman arrived at the port with her mother when she requested assistance for her daughter, who was in labor.

Agents said emergency medical personnel was requested but the baby couldn't wait. A CBP officer that is trained as an Emergency Medical Technician safely delivered a baby boy, along with the assistance of another officer.

The mother and the baby were transported to the local hospital for medical evaluation.

Monday evening, a 32-year-old man informed officers his 27-year-old brother was unresponsive in the vehicle.

The man informed the officers his brother had taken drugs earlier and was not feeling well.

CBP said an officer administered Naloxone (medication to rapidly reverse an opioid overdose). The San Luis Fire Department arrived to the port and transported the man to the hospital for further care.
