While it’s their job to save and protect life, three South Jersey Police Officers proved they can also bring life into the world. The three Little Egg Harbor Township Police Officers delivered a baby boy on Monday.

Sergeant David DiElmo, Patrolman Eric Nelson and Patrolman Thomas McAnney responded to a home on Lake Crystalbrook Drive Monday morning. When they arrived, they found a woman in labor with her baby already crowning.

With medical crews still on the way, the officers took action and helped the woman give birth to a 7-pound baby boy. Officials say the officers also helped the infant when the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck. According to the Press of Atlantic City, the healthy baby and mother were then taken to Southern Ocean Medical Center by Quality Ambulance Service for further treatment.
