HEMET, Calif. (AP) - Every now and then a police officer has to deliver a baby. The first time Officer Bryan Anderson did it, the baby was his own son.

Anderson was on duty early Sunday in Hemet, California, when he got a call from his wife saying she was about to give birth to their baby, who wasn't due for another week.

Anderson hurried home and called paramedics, but they didn't arrive in time. The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/1ksOpBx ) Anderson delivered baby Michael in their bathroom at 3:53 a.m.

The umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby's neck, but Anderson pulled it over his head.

Holly Anderson and baby Michael are doing fine.

    Israel and Hamas have lowered the pace of the fighting in the three-week-old Gaza war as international efforts intensify to end the conflict that has already killed 1,030 Palestinians and 43 Israeli soldiers.
    Israeli jets struck several sites in Gaza on Monday as rockets continued to fall on Israel, the Israeli military said, disrupting a relative lull in the Gaza war at the start of a major Muslim holiday.
