As someone who became a parent just a few years ago I’m always amazed by stories like this.
Yesterday (Wednesday 9/2) around 9:30am a newborn baby was delivered in the backseat of a car near the intersection of Stratford and Seaview ave in Bridgeport.
Detective Jorge Cintron happened to be driving in the area and was waved down by the father of the baby who had pulled over. Cintron immediately called for medical assistance while in the meantime helping the father deliver the baby. While this was all happening another citizen who was driving by pulled over and gave them some blankets from their car.
As far as we know the mother and baby girl were eventually taken to the hospital and reported to both be healthy.
What a story that kid will have for the rest of her life!
