MILWAUKEE, Aug. 4 (UPI) -- A pair of parks workers in Wisconsin said they helped deliver a baby when an expectant mother went into labor in a car near a park.

Milwaukee County Parks employee Laura Haugen, 26, and her boss, Nestor Rodriguez, 45, said they were working Tuesday morning at Kosciuszko Park when they saw John Negron pacing outside of his car on the street and calling 911 for help with his pregnant wife Tiffany, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Wednesday.

Haugen, who worked for seven years as a certified nursing assistant, and Rodriguez offered their help to the couple and the baby, Rosalia Nelida Negron, was born only moments later.

The parks workers said emergency responders soon arrived and took the family to the hospital. Haugen said she checked in with hospital workers and was told the mother and baby girl were doing well.

Haugen and Rodriguez said John Negron stopped by again later in the day to thank them for their assistance.

Haugen said the birth was "the most scary and amazing thing I have ever seen."
