Prince George’s County Police Sergeant Nick Cicale was flagged down by an expectant father on busy East West Highway in University Park last Thursday night. The father had been desperately trying to get his pregnant wife to the hospital in time to be under the supervision of doctors and nurses. But, the baby had other plans. When he arrived on the scene, Sergeant Cicale radioed in to dispatch at 9:40 pm “Female is having a baby, like right now”.
Sergeant Cicale immediately began tending to the mother– much of the special delivery was captured on the sergeant’s cruiser dash cam. Within minutes, the baby boy entered the world into the awaiting arms of Sergeant Cicale. At 9:44 pm, the sergeant told dispatch simply, “Baby is out”.
“I am so happy I was able to help this family on this incredible night and to be the first to hold little Carlos. I am glad he is healthy. I will never forget that night,” said Sergeant Cicale of the K9 Section, who later visited the baby and parents in the hospital.
