Atlantic City officers help woman who just gave birth

Two Atlantic City police officers helped a woman who almost made it to the hospital to give birth.
Officers Auttika Taing and Justin Peyton were leaving the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center’s City Campus on Saturday, when a vehicle pulled in behind them, Lt. Kevin Fair said.
The driver told them her friend needed help.
Inside the officers found a woman in stretch pants that clearly had movement inside. Then they heard the baby cry, Fair said.
Taing got the baby out and removed the umbilical cord wrapped about the baby’s neck, Fair said.
Peyton pinched the cord while Taing carried the baby into the emergency room.
“The baby was in her pants,” one of the officers is heard saying on body camera footage.
The baby cries as they walk.
Both officer later met with the mom and baby, who are both doing well, Fair said.
