When the officers arrived, they found the mother, 33-year-old Stefanie Andrade, in labor in the bathroom for her apartment.

Port Authority Police helped deliver a baby boy just outside of the Lincoln Tunnel during the Monday morning commute. Anthony Johnson has the heartwarming story.

The officers assisted Andrade in delivering the baby girl and then used a shoelace to tie off the umbilical cord until EMTs arrived.

The mother and baby, named Callie, were taken to Good Samaritan University Hospital in West Islip.

They are both expected to be just fine.
