[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

MARIETTA, Ga. » An 11-year-old Georgia boy delivered his baby brother with help from a 911 dispatcher.

According to WSB-TV Kenyarda Dukes, of Marietta, says she and her son James were at home Tuesday when she knew it was time.

Dukes recalled, "I was screaming and my son ran in the room. ‘Mom, are you OK?’ I’m like, ‘Nooo!’ "

Her baby was coming.

James said, "I called 911. They told me what to do. To get towels and wrap the baby up."

James did just that, welcoming his new brother, Royal Dukes, into the world weighing 6 pounds 9 ounces.

The boys’ father said, "Words can’t express how proud I am."

James says he just did what he had to do and now wants to be a doctor when he grows up.
