LAS VEGAS (AP) - It was no ordinary day on the job for Las Vegas police officer Jesus Jimenez.

Officials say Jimenez was dispatched to an apartment complex on East Charleston Boulevard Monday morning when he found the mother-to-be in labor in the back seat of a car.

Jimenez helped deliver the baby in the parking lot, unwrap the umbilical cord from the baby's neck, and clear the airway so the girl could breathe - all before medical personnel arrived.

Rescuers who showed up later took the mother and her new arrival to Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center.
