Dad delivers baby at gas station

FLORIDA (CNN) - A Florida couple's early morning stop at a station turned into a memory they'll never forget.

Their son was born right next to the gas pumps.

John Tester helped his wife, Shelly deliver their baby boy this morning at a gas station in Longwood.

They were trying to make it to the hospital, but the baby couldn't wait.

So, Tester pulled his pickup truck into the gas station and called for help.

"We were trying to make it to Altamonte Florida Hospital. We just didn't make it. We live in Enterprise Osteen area... and it just didn't work.

I had to deliver that baby in my truck with the aid of a 9-1-1 caller. So, it's a pretty wild night, buddy."

The newborn, named Colton, and his mom are both doing well.
