Baby boy delivered on North Bellmore front lawn

Nassau County police officers and ambulance medical technicians delivered a baby boy Wednesday morning on the front lawn of a North Bellmore residence.

The baby's twin brother was born moments later inside the ambulance on the way to Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow, police said.

"Both boys and mother are healthy and resting comfortably," police said in a news release.

First Precinct officers and two ambulance medical technicians responded at 9:37 a.m. to a Gina Court residence for a 29-year-old woman in labor, police said.

"While attempting to transport the mother," the officers and AMTs wound up delivering the boy on the front lawn, police said.
