This does not happen every day …

Rye Police Officer Chad Delgado, a US Navy veteran who joined Rye PD in 2016, welcomed his third child earlier than expected. “While driving his wife to the hospital, it became apparent to the happy couple that their third child would rather be born on the side of the Taconic State Parkway than the warmth of a maternity ward,” said the Rye PD in a statement.

PO Delgado used his training to assist his wife Lauren to deliver their new baby girl Violet. A passerby provided a towel and called 911. “A big thank you to our brothers in blue, Sergeant Racioppo, PO Charles, and PO Battista of the Yorktown Police Department who responded to the scene with EMS,” said Rye PD. “Everyone is happy, healthy and looking forward to a less eventful ride home!”
