Newborn okay after Conn. man helps deliver her, then drops her in the toilet

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- You can call him "Butterfingers" if you want.

A proud dad in Connecticut helped deliver his own baby, but dropped her in the toilet.

David Davis' pregnant wife was sent home from the hospital, but when she got home, her contractions just kept on coming. She started pushing, and Davis saw the baby's head.

"She had one last strong push," Davis recalled. "I had my hand on her back. The baby shot out and I couldn't grab it fast enough...fell in the toilet real quick and I pulled her out."

The baby girl is healthy, and Davis says he's trying to think of jokes to tell about how he brought his daughter into the world.
