When they arrived, they found the expecting mother who said she felt she was going to give birth any minute, police said. Pellegrino helped her lay down, and Caporrino and Scarlett gathered clean towels to prepare for the child’s birth. Within minutes of arrival, the troopers helped deliver “a beautiful baby girl,” State Police said.

EMS arrived on scene shortly after, and the troopers assisted in cutting the umbilical cord. Both the mother and her baby were transported to Inspira Medical Center Vineland, where they were listed in stable condition, State Police said.
