Cop Delivers Baby in Parking Lot His Second Night on the Job

Cop Delivers Baby in Parking Lot His Second Night on the Job

Last week, officer Mark Pieffer of the Berlin Borough Police Department in Berlin, New Jersey was working his second-ever shift as a cop when he responded to a 1:30 a.m. call that a woman had gone into labor in a car parked outside an event space. Ten minutes later, the rookie had delivered a healthy baby girl.

“The dad was yelling to me, ‘She can’t go. She’s not going to make it. The baby’s coming now,’” Pieffer told Philly-based news station NBC10 of the scene that awaited him when he arrived.
The 31-year-old had no training on how to deliver a baby and isn’t a dad himself, but he acted quickly, grabbing gloves and blankets.

Once he had a chance to observe the mom-to-be, however, he admits he thought he was going to be in the clear. To him, the woman appeared to be doing okay, leading him to believe they had plenty of time for the emergency medical team to arrive. “She was laying sideways and she was really calm,” Pieffer recalled of the laboring woman. “So at that point I was like, ‘Okay, maybe we have some time here.’”

Oh boy, was he wrong.

As the responding medics arrived and started unloading their equipment, the baby started to crown. “I heard the mom let out a scream and then I looked over and I saw the baby’s head coming out,” Pieffer said.

His adrenaline took over and he jumped into action, his body cam capturing the whole birth on film. “Oh god, it’s here, it’s here, it’s here, it’s here,” someone can be heard on the footage shouting as Pieffer calmly tells the startled parents and the EMS team, “the baby’s coming out, I’ve got its head.”
Seconds later, you hear the baby start crying and Pieffer announce, “I got it.”

A week after that eventful night in the parking lot, the happy parents Keith and Mary brought their newborn daughter Alice to meet the man who helped bring her into the world.

“I’m happy everything turned out well,” Mary told reporters. “It’s a great story now, that’s for sure.”
It’s safe to say that Pieffer, who was a teacher before joining the police force, will never forget his second day on his new job. And Alice will have a great story to tell her future friends.

“It just feels good to be able to help,” Pieffer said. “Whether it was my second night or in my tenth year."
