A rare occurrence: First responders deliver first baby in Sea Isle City since 1977

Posted: Updated:

First responders helped deliver the first baby born in Sea Isle City, Cape May County in more than 40 years.

Joe and Jeanne Golato were expecting baby number two in three weeks, until Jeanee started having pain Monday and told her husband to call 911.

Within five minutes of police and EMTs arriving, Jeanne delivered a healthy baby girl named Luciana -- a rare occurrence for the city.

With no hospital in town, a baby hasn't been born there since 1977. The city honored both the family and first responders for helping to make history.
