State Troopers Deliver Lakewood Baby On Parkway

state police tls picState Troopers again came to the rescue this morning and delivered a Lakewood couple’s baby on the Garden State Parkway, sources tell TLS. The couple was traveling Northbound on the Parkway but when they realized they weren’t going to make it to the Hospital on time, they pulled onto the shoulder and called 911.

Three State Troopers and an Ambulance arrived within minutes, and delivered the baby. The mother and baby were then transported to the Hospital.

In May, TLS reported about another Lakewood couple which had their baby delivered by Troopers. TLS-BR.

  1. Why do so many Lakewood people feel that local hospitals aren’t ‘good enough for them’?
    Why is everyone driving miles & miles to get to the ‘Chashuve’ hospital that their sister in law told them about?
    It’s only childbirth, not open heart surgery.
    Seems kinda ridiculous.

  2. I, too appreciate the help and the competence of the sate trooper. The joke just came to me like a blitz , and I couldn’t resist being a …a .. a wise guy!

  3. to #2 some people have high risk pregnancies and yes choose to go to the top of the line dr. not the hospital they are going to. it happens to be the best dr. are in manhattan

  4. Do not comment on a situation you have no knowledge of. There are many high risk pregnancies that can be more serious than Open Heart Surgery because there are two lives involved. Sometimes people have no choice but to travel a bit to a hospital that can properly handle the birth. You should only hope you never have to deal with a high risk pregnancy and all of the mental and physical strain that comes along with it.

  5. #2 your correct that if it isnt high risk and their arent any complications one can go to either kmc or brick but we arent privy (nor should we be) to all the factors going into the decisions a couple makes but most often the decision is based on which physician they choose and then having to use the hospital the physician is associated with

  6. the hospital is not the choice of the patient but rather the doctor where he is affiliated. for whatever reason they were using this particular doctor who we dont know who it is, they had to go to his hospital. hard to be judgemental here without more details of when they left , did they ignore early labor warning signs, etc. thank g-d a healthy baby was born. maybe give thanks that your children( if you have any) , were born in the hospital and you didnt have anxiety that all will be well with both wife and child. labor is dangerous even in the hospital. things dont always go smooth.

  7. your just a boored person who wants to stir up some hock- you obviously dont realy believe in what you say- RIGHT?!?!!? if yeah…..GET SOME HELP!

  8. Why is everyone looking to judge someone else. “Did they ignore pre-labor signs?” I have a large family and some of my later children were born very quickly and then others took very long. The doctor usually tells people not to come in at the first sign of labor, but it’s not always easy to know when’s the right time to leave. Please stop being so critical and judgemental or others.

  9. there are stories about every hospital. Is it better to wind up in a hospital you don’t know with a doctor you don’t know ? High risk is one thing – but that’s only 20% of the ppl who go to NY. All my kids were born in Kimball & most of their kids & my nrother’s & my sister’s & bh all are fine.
    Also, the nursing care there is great which also matters.

  10. And here we go again…
    To #2 (very appropriate) a.k.a. PrettyBoyFloyd:
    With a name like that it is quite understandable why you don’t understand why people travel a distance to the hospital of their choosing. Thankfully those with wisdom responded to your comment of poor taste and low IQ. Without my having to add other than: a.You just wish to get a rise out of us; b. You are a single fellow who hasn’t an inkling of what child-birth entails; are married for 15 years, have 10 children (one more on the way) and do to your vast knowledge and obvious experience can easily set up a birthing room in your backyard without much ado. Others aren’t as fortunate as you who can settle for a fly-by-night hospital, doctor, midwife – wait! I believe that #11 is on the way! Don’t forget your first aid kit!

  11. To #2,
    You are taking a VERY big risk by delivering in KMC.
    They don’t have a NeoNatal ICU, so if the baby is born with any complications, there’s not much they can do for him, short of transporting him to another hospital. You are losing precious time which can be life altering.
    Think before you criticize people when you probably don’t know much about the topic.

  12. About 10 years ago this similar story happened to us while going to a “local” hospital… We didn’t appreciate all the comments…
    “Vehavta l’reacha Kamocha”

  13. Ha Ha! There are people registered at Kimball for birth and the baby has been born at home. When we wish “B’haa Tova” that auspicious time is in G-d’s hands,
