EVERETT, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — An Everett Police officer was in the right place at the right time on Monday. Officer Jeffrey McCabe was working a construction detail on Chelsea Street and noticed a car pull off to the side of the road at around 12:45 PM Monday afternoon.
McCabe went up to the car and saw a woman who was clearly in distress, realized she was in labor, and called for backup from the Everett Fire Department and Cataldo EMS. The officer needed a translator because of a language barrier, and another officer, Nancy Guzman was able to interpret for the woman.
A trio of first responders helped the woman in labor, and the woman gave birth to a baby girl a short time later.
Mayor Carla DeMaria thanked the police and fire departments for their role in the delivery, saying she was "Grateful for the swift and professional response by all agencies involved in the delivery of a new baby girl."
