OCEAN TOWNSHIP - Two officers helped deliver a healthy baby boy whose mom just couldn't make it to the hospital in time.

Officer Raheem Carter and officer Kyle Kane arrived at the parking lot of a 7-Eleven store located on Deal Road just before 6 p.m. Wednesday and found a woman in labor.

The 28-year-old Lakewood woman was in the back seat of a taxi cab in active labor. 

As Carter and Kane waited for EMS personnel to arrive, the mother began giving birth. They helped deliver the baby just before paramedics arrived.

Both mother and baby were taken to Monmouth Medical Center. 

A stork pin is traditionally awarded to public service members who assist in delivering a baby.
