PHOTOS: Lakewood couple thanks NJSP Trooper who helped deliver their child on the GSP

baby lkwdNot every trooper will deliver a baby roadside in their career. And for those who do, very few ever reunite with mom, dad, and baby.

But on Friday, January 20, Sgt. Sean Boag got a chance to be with the family again, under much better conditions.

IMG_2379It all started on December 11, 2015 when Sgt. Boag was off-duty on his way home from work when he heard a dispatcher’s transmission requesting a trooper’s assistance with a woman who was going into labor on the side of the Parkway at milepost 110. Since he was close to where they were stopped, he was able to arrive within minutes of the initial call. Less than five minutes after he arrived, Sgt. Boag helped mom deliver a healthy baby girl.
