The following is a Facebook post by the Long Branch Police:
Officers never know what to expect when they head in for their next shift but we bet that today, Corporals Joseph Graziano and Thomas Hueston had the surprise of a lifetime!
At 1:28 p.m., they responded to a couple, lost on Broadway & Memorial Parkway while trying to locate Monmouth Medical Center. You guessed it...Mom went into labor. Corporals Graziano and Hueston knew that they did not have time to get to the hospital and began to assist in the delivery of the baby girl.
Graziano caught the baby, Hueston cleared her airway, Long Branch First Aid cut the umbilical cord and Monmouth Medical will make sure mom and baby stay healthy and strong.
Amazing job today guys! Best wishes to baby, mom & family!
