SAN LUIS, AZ (CBS5) -

A unique arrival awaited Customs and Border protection officers at Arizona's San Luis Port on Thanksgiving Day.

A 21-year-old woman barely made it to the Port before giving birth, officers said.  

The unidentified woman said she was in labor and asked personnel for assistance.

Police immediately responded and called the San Luis Fire Department, but the baby apparently was unwilling to wait.

Within minutes, CBP Officer Maggie Gonzales rushed in to help the woman until paramedics arrived and took over. 

The mother and baby boy were taken to Yuma Regional Medical Center for further evaluation.  

"This was one of the scariest, rewarding and amazing experiences in my life," Gonzalez said.
