PORT NORRIS, NJ (CBS) — Several New Jersey State Police troopers helped deliver a baby this morning in the parking lot of the Port Norris station.
Police say around 8:44 a.m., troopers were told by Cumberland County Communications that a woman in labor was being driven to the station because she believed she was going to deliver the baby before they could reach a hospital.READ MORE: CDC, FDA Recommend US Pause Use Of Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 Vaccine Over Blood Clot Concerns
When the driver and expectant mother arrived at the station in a van, Det. Matthew Hanlin, Det. Andrew Abdill and Troopers Bryan Blair and Tyler Dornewass immediately jumped into action to help deliver the baby girl.
One of the troopers said they noticed the umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby’s neck and that elevated the situation.
