The motto for most police officers is to protect and serve. For Fontana police Officer Jennie Venzor, add “and deliver” to that phrase.

The veteran officer helped bring a new life into the world just before midnight Tuesday, Jan. 30, a Fontana news release said: a baby named Luna.

On the night of the “super blue blood moon” — a supermoon, blue moon and lunar eclipse all on the same night — the baby’s mom started having contractions, the release said.

Before she could get to the hospital, her water broke and the baby came in a hurry.

However, Venzor managed to get there in time to help deliver the 7-pound, 5-ounce baby.

Paramedics arrived shortly after, and took Luna and her mom, Ruth, to the hospital, the release said. Both are doing well.
