When Rob Lutz' wife Laura went into labor, there was no time to get to the hospital - he had to deliver his son.

"This is going to happen here; we need to be ready for this," recalled Lutz, who delivered his son on the bathroom floor of his family's Moore home with guidance from a 911 operator.

"He's coming out all the way," Lutz is heard telling the Spartanburg County 911 operator.

"As the baby delivers support the baby's head and shoulders and hold its hips and legs firmly," the operator told Lutz.

 "Remember - the baby's going to be slippery, so don't drop it," the operator instructed Lutz.

"I was trying not to freak out," new mom Laura said when interviewed by WSPA-TV.

Their son, Jude, was born minutes before paramedics arrived.

Scary as it was for Lutz and his wife, he wouldn't take it back for anything.

"That's an experience - you will never forget it," Lutz said.

"It's a beautiful thing."

Both the baby and the mother are now out of the hospital and doing well.
