First Responders on Long Island Help Deliver Baby Boy on Side of LIE

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.
