2 police officers help motorist deliver baby

Two Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania police officers dispatched to investigate a traffic accident ended up helping to deliver a baby girl

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Two western Pennsylvania police officers dispatched to investigate a traffic accident ended up helping to deliver a baby girl.

Alan Freeman said he was driving his wife, Laurie, from their home in suburban Bethel Park to West Penn Hospital in Pittsburgh early Saturday.

But he soon realized that their second child wasn’t going to wait.

So, when he spotted the Pittsburgh officers investigating an unrelated minor crash, he pulled over and asked for their help.

Alan said one found him a blanket and they helped keep the couple calm until the baby came.

Seven-pound, 3-ounce Cecily Kate Freeman and her mother were reported to be resting comfortably.

And her father says he has some advice for her future partner. He says when she wants something, “she will get it.”
