NEW YORK (NBC) — Sathyea Priya Sentil wasn’t due until May 10, but on Monday, she started having contractions.
Sentil and her husband called an to take them to a hospital in New York City. As the Uber approached the Lincoln Tunnel, the baby starting coming out.
The driver pulled over in a safety area just before the toll and flagged down three New York Port Authority officers — who then helped deliver a 6 pound, 3 ounce girl.
“One of the police officers came and asked, ‘Are you contracting how’s the pain?’ I said to him like the baby already came out,” Sentil said.
This is the couple’s second child.
