NYPD Officers Help Deliver Baby

Two New York City police officers helped deliver a baby in Manhattan on Easter.

Officers Stephan Koustoubardis and Vincent Ching responded to a 9-1-1 call on Sunday morning about a baby on the way.  They helped the father deliver the child in the car. 

“We were flagged down by the husband that was already with her on the driver’s side of the vehicle and pretty much delivering the baby in labor at that moment.  So I actually stepped in and assisted the husband and took care of the rest of the delivery with him,” Officer Koustoubardis said.

The mother and child were both taken to the hospital and both are said to be doing well.

“We were the first ones that responded to the scene and it was very uplifting.  As police officers, we don’t normally handle these kinds of situations and it feels great to help directly bring a new life into this world,” Officer Ching said.

“On #EasterSunday and 24/7 every day of the year, highly trained NYPD cops are there for everyone in NYC. Nice job, Officer Koustoubardis! Congrats to the family,” Chief Terence Monahan tweeted.

The NYPD's 19th Precinct tweeted a photo of the officers meeting with the Crotty family at the hospital

"Congrats to the Crotty family," the tweet said.
