Authorities say the parents -- Wiclef and Latoya Desamour -- were on their way to St. Joseph's Hospital when their baby girl was ready to be born. The father pulled over and asked Rich for help.

The family welcomed their third daughter -- and fourth child-- a short time later. Fire rescue arrived and took the baby and Latoya to the hospital.
