8-year-old Florida girl delivers baby brother

FLORIDA (CNN Newsource) - An 8-year-old Florida girl helped deliver her new baby brother after her mom could not make it to the hospital when she went into labor.

Krystle Garcia's water broke while she was in the bathroom so she asked her daughter Jazmine McEnaney to call 9-1-1.  "I am at home with my eight year old daughter," Garcia said, "Even if I called somebody they are not going to come quick enough." 

The 9-1-1 operator lead Jazmine through the procedure and she stayed calm throughout.  Her new brother, Joseph James Snyder, came two weeks early but had a successful delivery thanks to his older, calm, sister.
