JAMAICA, QUEENS (WABC) — Three NYPD officers made a special delivery when a woman suddenly went into labor at her Jamaica, Queens home on Wednesday.
Officers assigned to the 103rd Precinct responded to a 911 call at 107th Avenue and 165th Street after 21-year-old Sade James’ water broke around 1 p.m.
They quickly realized that there was not enough time to get to the hospital.
Officers Kevin Kelland, Christian Mele and Justin Rodriguez immediately put their training to work.
Kelland sat ready to hold the newborn while Rodriguez and Mele encouraged James and helped her get her breathing under control.
After 10 minutes, Saye Jeremiah Clausel was born!
The newborn baby boy weighed 6 pounds, 12 ounces after emergency medical crews rushed the mother and baby to Queens Hospital.
Later this week, officers visited Sai and his mom, who are doing well.
