Diana Williams reports on the baby boy born on the Robert Moses causeway.

Police officers on Long Island went above and beyond to help bring their newest resident into the world.

A baby boy just couldn't wait to get to the hospital for his arrival, and his parents couldn't be happier.

It was a long night for 26-year-old mom Chelsea Breedy, now proudly holding her new son, a six-pound three-ounce bundle of joy who was born in the back of an ambulance on the side of the road.

"I think he was out before we even got a chance to pull over," Breedy said.

Sparks was there when they called the ambulance shortly after midnight, and headed to Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip.

Police Medic Ryan Makovy knew the baby was arriving and soon.

"He looked once and said, 'The baby's head isn't there, we can make it to the hospital.' She screamed out and he looked again and he was like, 'OK we have to pull over right now,' and I was just shocked, I was just shocked. You only see this stuff in the movies," said Ronald Sparks, father.

It is fitting that this little guy is now named Channing, after the actor Channing Tatum, he was born on the Robert Moses causeway.

Friday at the hospital, the crew on board shared in the family's joy.

For Officer David Pyes, it was his first delivery.

"I got to say, 'It's a boy!' over the radio for the first time, so I was very happy about that," Pyes said.

Dad was proud to have a son.

"This is my fourth time around, but this is my first son, it is just unbelievable," Sparks said.
