Four New Jersey State troopers on Monday helped deliver a baby girl on the side of the Turnpike after the mother's water unexpectedly broke, police said.
The birth occurred around 2:45 p.m. at milepost 106.5 in Newark. The woman and her husband, both from New York City, called 911 and pulled over there. They had been headed to a doctor's appointment, police said.
Trooper Robert Ravotto wrapped the baby in a blanket, preventing the child from going into shock in the cold weather, and cleared her airway, police said. Det. I Jason Kazan, Det. Robert Kilmurray and Trooper II Robert Ciecwicz also assisted.
