Trooper Rich

On September 24, Trooper Dennis Rich of FHP’s Troop C - Tampa District was investigating a traffic crash, eastbound Interstate 4 between Hillsborough Avenue and US Highway 301. While investigating that crash, a westbound motorist stopped in the center median for help. The driver and his wife were headed to St. Joseph’s Hospital for the delivery of their new baby. The baby wasn’t waiting. The trooper was spotted nearby and was called upon to help. Trooper Rich immediately responded and moments later helped deliver a healthy baby girl. Soon thereafter, all were assisted by Hillsborough County Fire Rescue and later transported to the hospital. Outstanding job, Trooper Rich.
