What a trooper: NJ State Police deliver baby in back of minivan

Posted: Updated:

Day-to-day operations for New Jersey State Troopers can range from stopping motorists for driving violations to making arrests on dangerous criminals.

Sometimes they’re called on to assist in a different kind of emergency. Like delivering a baby.

That’s exactly what happened on Friday, May 9 on Rt. 206 in Sussex County. Kimberly and Robert Giarratano were en route to Morristown Medical Center from their Pennsylvania home when the soon-to-be mom’s labor pains intensified, according to New Jersey State Police.

At that point the family – with four- and two-year-old sons in tow – decided to reroute to Newton Hospital and called 9-1-1 for a police escort.

Troopers William Cisko and Luis Jacinto of the Sussex Barracks responded and found the family’s minivan parked in lot of the Frankford Township Municipal Building.
