SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Sometimes babies come into the world on a timetable completely different from their parents'.
Case in point: Cameron Ihnen. His mom had been having contractions all day Tuesday, but the hospital in Sioux Falls, S.D. said she wasn't dilated enough for delivery.
Cameron had other plans, as his father heard his mom cry out from the family bathroom.
"She goes the baby's coming. I'm like what? No. So, I went in there and asked her what was going on,” said John Ihnen.
"Josh was like, ‘What do you want me to do?’ Just help me get to the ground and call 911. And, then, he did awesome and picked up from there," said his wife, Stephanie Ihnen.
The boy's umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck and he wasn't breathing.
But, a calm 911 operator walked Josh through how to tie off the cord using a shoelace from his work boot.
Josh admits now he was scared, but says at the time, there wasn't time to think about it.
