MARSHALL, Wis. - Two Marshall Police Department employees helped deliver a baby girl in the police department parking lot Thursday morning, according to a release.
The father, who was also celebrating a birthday, ran into the Marshall Police Department looking for help, according to the release.
Officer Kristine Quam and her sister Deanna Chadwick, an administrative assistant at the police department, helped deliver the baby minutes after the parents got to the police department around 7:45 a.m., according to the release.
