First Baby Girl Born At World Trade Center

Asenat Abdrabo became the first baby born at the new World Trade Center after the 9/11 attack. According to Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, a family of three – mother, father, and 2-year-old son – was on their way to the hospital at around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday. But Asenat had it her way. She wanted to meet the world while still inside the momentous building.

The baby’s mother, Marwa Abdrado, was at the station in Lower Manhattan together with her husband and son when she felt contractions. The family was actually at the station because they were already on their way to the hospital. However, the baby made her mother know that she could no longer wait until they get to the emergency room.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced the delivery through a tweet.

Governor of the New York States, Andrew Cuomo, expressed his congratulatory message to the police of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Three police officers working for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey responded to the incident. Abdrado “felt the baby coming and the officers prepared the area and aided for a possible birth,” the Port Authority said in a statement obtained by The New York Times.

Only one among the three officers present has delivered the baby – Officer Brian McGraw. Joe Pentanglo, a spokesman for the Port Authority Police Department, said McGraw worked as an emergency technician during his previous job. Hence, he was prepared to respond in situations like this.

Baby Asenat has timed her arrival in the world perfectly – an hour before the busy hours.

“Luckily, it was 2:30 in the morning and when a whole lot of people weren’t there,” McGraw said.

“I guess a few of the guys looked to me to get in there and handle the situation. I’ll never forget this day,” he added.
