The 911 dispatchers were overrun with calls and dealing with manpower shortage had only one paramedic to responded to the call. The house was very dark,due to an power outage so the paramedic asked Brandi, a 3-year-old girl, to hold a flashlight over her Mommy so he could see while he helped deliver the baby. Very diligently, Brandi did as she was asked. The woman pushed and pushed, and after a little while her son was born. The paramedic lifted him by his little feet and spanked him on his bottom. The child began to cry. The paramedic then thanked Brandi for her help and asked the wide-eyed 3-year old what she thought about what she had just witnessed. Brandi quickly responded, "Well, he shouldn't have crawled in there in the first place ......... smack his *** again!"
