Atlantic City Police Officers Help Deliver Baby Girl
Police officers never know what to expect while on duty and for two Atlantic City police officers, they were able to say hello to a new little baby girl. Both officers just happen to be in the right place at the right time to welcome a new life into this world.
On last Saturday, February 20th, Atlantic City Police Officers Auttika Taing and Justin Peyton were leaving the AtlanticCare Regional Medical Center, City Division when they were approached by a driver who pulled up behind their car. The driver alerted the two officers that her friend was in need of prompt medical care.
The officers quickly responded to the woman in need, who had just alerted them that she had just given birth and the baby was now located in her stretch pants. Both officers heard the distinct sound of a new born baby crying from the vehicle.
According to the Atlantic City Police,
Officer Taing safely removed the baby. The umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby’s neck and removed. The baby was wrapped in a jacket while medical personnel arrived to cut the umbilical cord. Officer Peyton pinched the cord while Officer Taing carried the baby into the Emergency Room for evaluation.
Mom and the new baby girl are both doing fine. Both officers were also able to meet and spend some time with the new mom and her daughter.
Job well done by the ACPD!
