“The FDNY Dispatcher was very calm and reassuring,” Allison continued. “She told us to pull the car over because it was time to deliver this baby.”
“We pulled over just off the George Washington Bridge. The whole experience was very frightening, but I remember seeing flashing lights and hearing sirens and that’s when I knew that EMS was coming to find us. It was comforting to know that they were coming to help us.”
Allison ended up delivering her second-born right there in the front seat of the car!
She and her husband decided to name their newborn son after Allison’s brother Josh, who sadly passed away from Leukemia when he was only 3-years-old. “We named him Jordan Harris Goldfarb, after my brother Joshua Harrison,” Allison explained.
If you think this is a pretty shocking birth story, one of the EMTs for the FDNY noted these kinds of calls come in pretty frequently!
