“I guess a few of the guys looked to me to get in there and handle the situation,” Officer McGraw told the publication. “I’ll never forget this day.”

The baby was born at the New World Trade Center on a PATH concourse. The mother was on her way to the hospital but the baby couldn’t wait.

The mother and the newborn were then transported to a nearby hospital, where they are both doing well.
