Doctor Stays in Character as Joker and Delivers Baby On Halloween
If you think that Joker is just always up to no good, think again! Donned as the archnemesis of the caped crusader, this doctor delivered a baby during the Halloween celebration this year.
Dr. Paul Locus from Henry County Medical Center in Paris, Tennessee was all prepped up for Halloween, including the DC villains coat and makeup, when Brittany Selph was rushed to the delivery room.
Interviewed by Today, the woman said: “I think seeing him dressed up in the delivery room, it did kind of take away from everything I was doing and the pain. It was a good laugh, it made me feel calm.”
Although the infamous villain is always on the bad side, this time, he found himself being the hero of the day. Justin, the proud father of a new baby girl, who the couple named Oaklyn, said that he and his wife were a little ‘shocked’ when the ‘Joker’ entered the operating room donned in a purple suit and full make-up.
Brittany’s husband said: “I got on Facebook Live right away and though this is too good not to video.”
The attending doctor had planned to go back home and change into his regular hospital clothes that day after checking on his patients, including Selph. But since it was Halloween, his patient persuaded him to do something out of the ordinary and act like the villain himself.
Justin said: “We kind of thought if he would stay in the delivery room, it would be kind of cool. He is such a genuine guy and a good sport. He would even talk every once in a while in that Joker voice.”
The couple’s 10-year-old son Brenden had the best time that day, he even had a picture taken with the doctor in character. Being afraid of clowns, their 4-year-old daughter McKinley did not have the same experience.
Rhonda Crossett, Henry County Medical Center’s director says that Dr. Locus takes the extra mile to make his practice fun for his patients. She added: “He loves going the extra mile to give them a unique and enjoyable delivery experience.”
