All in a Day’s Work? Local Cops Deliver Baby in Mystic Island Home

Ben Fogletto/Press of Atlantic City

When your a cop, you never know what your workday may hold.  There’s a great story… in today’s Press of Atlantic City about three policemen from Little Egg Harbor Township who responded to a call about a woman going into labor.

When Sgt. David DiElmo, and Patrolmen Thomas McAnney and Eric Nelson got to the unidentified woman’s house in Mystic Island Monday morning about 8am, the expectant mom had already began contractions and the baby’s head had begun to crown.

There was no time for a trip to the hospital because, minutes later, the delivery began.  But, as the baby began to emerge, Sgt. DiElmo realized the umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby’s neck. Jeez, these cops can’t catch a  break!

DiElmo kept his calm and acted immediately, removing the umbilical cord from around the baby’s neck.  Shortly after, EMT’s arrived and stabilized mother and child before transporting them to Southern Ocean Medical Center. Both mother and her baby boy are said to be doing well.

Tuesday, LEH. police Chief Richard Buzby issued performance commendations to the officers and congratulated them on their quick thinking and actions!

What a great story!  Leave your congratulations for mother and baby and the police in the comments section below.
