Coral Springs first responders paid baby April and her family a visit

By PoliceOne Staff

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. — A group of first responders who delivered a baby during the chaos of Hurricane Irma recently reunited with the baby and her family.

CNN reported that baby April was already on her way when a dispatcher picked up the 911 call. Police and fire crews drove through the city in an armored vehicle to reach the mother.

The baby was “pretty much all the way out” when the first responders got there, but officials cut the umbilical cord and transported the mother and baby to the hospital. 

The Coral Spring Police Department tweeted photos of the reunion on Sept. 19 between April and the first responders. April’s brother even got a close-up look at a fire truck.
