Baby Girl Delivered in Car With the Help of NYPD Officers

NYPD officers helped an Upper East Side couple deliver their baby when the tenacious newborn wouldn't wait around for a hospital.

Kelly Crotty went into labor at her home on East 92nd Street on Sunday morning, police say.

Crotty’s husband was able to get her downstairs to a car, but called 911 when it became clear the baby was determined to enter the world right then and there. 

Two officers helped deliver the healthy baby girl in the vehicle, the NYPD says.

Kelly Crotty was taken to NYU Langone hospital, where she and her baby were resting and doing well Sunday evening.

The officers say that it was their first delivery while on duty.
