The Police Department in Georgetown Kentucky had their very own baby boom.

Kentucky State Police was astounded to discover that no less than seven of their state troopers were about to become dads, all at the same time.

Well, almost. The due dates for the seven babies were at the most 6 months apart, and that is pretty close.

“When one of the wives realized that they were all having babies, she wanted to capture it. She thought it was therapeutic.”

TINY TOTS IN UNIFORMS

The mothers had tiny identical outfits made for the babies, so they could be in uniforms, just like their dads.

The oldest baby was 6 months old, and the youngest was just 8 days old at the time of the shoot, and keeping all seven tots happy and smiling was a huge task for Puckett.

A FORMER POLICE OFFICER SAVED A BABY GIRL'S LIFE

A former police officer leaped into action when he realized a baby was in danger.

Retired sheriff's officer Steve Eckel was in the parking lot of a Kohl’s department store in Howell Township, New Jersey when he saw a baby locked in a hot car, with all the windows closed.

According to Ecke the baby was "sweating, crying, eyes rolling back,” and the former policemen took immediate action.

He called 911 to report the occurrence, then smashed in the front passenger window and pulled the baby out of the sweltering car.

The baby girl's body temperature was above 100 degrees when the paramedics arrived on the scene. If Eckle hadn't rescued her, she would have died.

The baby's mother, Karen B. Gruen, was arrested and has been charged with child endangerment.
