Officer Helps Deliver 1st Baby Born at World Trade Center Since 9/11
New York City’s Port Authority police helped deliver a baby girl on the World Trade Center’s PATH concourse.
Mom Marwa Abdrabo, her husband and their 2-year-old son were on their way to the hospital, but the baby just couldn’t wait.
Officer Brian McGraw, a former EMT, helped deliver the healthy baby girl at 2:36 a.m. on Tuesday.
The girl, named Asenat, is the first baby born at the World Trade Center since the 9/11 attacks.
“I guess a few of the guys looked to me to get in there and handle the situation,” Officer McGraw said. “I’ll never forget this day.”
Officer McGraw said delivering a baby at the station would have been a lot more difficult if it had happened at an hour when the station was busier.
“Luckily, it was 2:30 in the morning and when a whole lot of people weren’t there,” he said.
