Continuing with updates on the latest transit happenings, a new baby was welcomed into the world at the Broadway Junction station last night. Here is the story courtesy of NY1
A newborn baby and mom are doing fine after a special delivery on the L subway platform last night, and they have three of the city’s finest to thank.
The 24-year-old woman went into labor shortly before 10 p.m. at the Broadway Junction station in Brooklyn. Transit police officers Bruno Valenti, Brian Higgins and Leslie Grant responded and helped deliver the baby. Sergeant Valenti is a trained EMT.
Police say the mother was already in labor when the officers got there, and the baby was delivered before the ambulance arrived.
I am glad that the delivery went without complications. I would like to take this time to congratulate the three officers on a great job. Lastly I would like to wish the mother & her new child all the best in 2007 & beyond.
