Orange police officers help care for baby girl born at home

New Haven

ORANGE, Conn. (WTNH) — An extra special Christmas gift was delivered a little bit early in Orange.

Baby Jillian just couldn’t wait to celebrate the holidays. She was born at her home, just before 10:00 p.m. Monday night.

Officers Frank Koshes and Emily Taylor got there right after she was born. They helped out by clamping and cutting the umbilical cord, suctioning her nose and mouth, and wrapping her up nice and warm.

Mom and baby are doing fine, and are ready to celebrate their first Christmas.
