ELMONT, New York -- Two police officers and a police medic helped a New York woman deliver a baby in her basement apartment on New Year's Eve.
The seven pound, nine ounce, 19-inch baby girl was named Nevaeh, which the officers explained "is heaven spelled backward."
The baby and 29-year old mother, Rochell, are doing fine.
Officers Steven Martucci and Police Medic Brian Ferrucci had actually helped deliver a baby in the past.
"It's a nice feeling to do that. Considering what we deal with all day, it's nice to bring a baby into the world," said Martucci, who has four young children of his own.
"It was a good feeling. Brought back a lot of good memories. It was nice."
