On June 16, 2016, at approximately 9:20 a.m., Senior Corporal Rocky Munster, #5931, was driving along I-35N in a marked Dallas Police squad car when he was flagged down by Ms. Nafeesah Iddeen, the sister of a woman who was about to give birth.  Senior Corporal Munster asked the woman to pull over and she pulled over to the right lane where she stopped alongside the freeway. Senior Corporal Munster got out of his vehicle and approached Ms. Iddeen’s car.   Ms. Iddeen opened the back door and Senior Corporal Munster realized the baby was coming right away.  Senior Corporal Munster delivered the baby on I-35 N, in the back seat of the vehicle.  Dallas Fire Rescue arrived to the scene minutes later; baby, Jaliah Wade, and mommy, Aysha Iddeen-Wade, are doing very well. Senior Corporal Munster is currently assigned to the Southwest Patrol Division.
