    First-responders on Long Island helped deliver a baby boy on the side of the LIE Thursday night.

    The 27-year-old mom-to-be’s water broke on the way to the hospital and her brother-in-law pulled over near exit 58 in Islandia.

    Highway patrol officer Joseph Goss got to the scene first, put a blanket underneath Jessica Ramos of Brentwood and reclined her seat.

    Ramos was placed on a backboard and carried to an ambulance, where she gave birth to her son, Noah, at 7:05 p.m.

    Ramos and Noah were transported to Stony Brook University Hospital in good condition.

    On Wednesday night, a group of NYPD transit officers helped deliver the child of a homeless woman in a downtown Brooklyn subway station.
