NYPD cops help deliver baby inside car in Brooklyn
Two NYPD officers helped deliver a baby girl Monday after finding a mother in labor in the passenger seat of her car on a busy Brooklyn street.
Officers Susanna Reynolds and Charles Moncayo were on Washington Avenue in Fort Greene when they heard a cry for help on Atlantic Avenue about 11 a.m.
Alden Honeyghan had pulled over his Toyota RAV4 when his pregnant wife Sherene’s water broke, New York Daily News reports.
“I was on my way to the hospital … and I felt my water break and my husband stopped the car,” Sherene told the News. “It happened so fast. I couldn’t believe it.”
The cops arrived just as Sherene gave birth to baby Jessica.
Using a new bag of rags and a ribbon that a passerby had, the officers helped tie the umbilical cord, then transported mom and baby to Brooklyn Hospital.
Both were in good health on Tuesday.
