Delivering a baby while on duty is something a police officer might have to do once in their professional career.
Port Authority Officer Brian McGraw, however, delivered his second on-duty baby Wednesday night in the new Oculus transit hub in the World Trade Center.
McGraw, who is a trained emergency medical technician, and Sgt. Aaron Woody responded to an assistance call from patrolling Officer Matthew Binkowitz, who was approached around 11 p.m. by Suraji Agbere, who told him that his wife, Mariam Suleman, was in labor, CBS New York reported.
Minutes later, a healthy baby girl named Naheeda was born behind a makeshift privacy screen made from a nearby display. She and her parents were taken to Lenox Hill Hospital, where both are doing well, a hospital representative said Thursday.
McGraw delivered his first on-duty baby, a girl named Asenat Abdrabo, in the WTC PATH station last year. Like Naheeda, Asenat also holds the distinction of being the first baby born at that WTC station.
