whdh7: A police officer helped a mother deliver her baby in the parking lot of the Malden Police Department.


Officer Michael Casaletto received an unusual call early Sunday morning when he received word that a mother was giving birth on Malden City Hall Plaza. Casaletto rushed to the scene and found the parents in their car and the baby turning blue.

"I just helped, as the mother and father did most of the work," said Casaletto. "Checked her mouth. I did a finger sweep. On her own she started turning pink, so she started looking good and her eyes opened. So I was happy with that."

"We think that the baby possibly could have died, so he was very quick to help us out," said Lewdorsey Williams, the father.

After his wife's water broke, the nervous husband attempted to drive his family to Tufts Medical Center, but didn't make it in time, ending up at Malden's City Hall Plaza.

"I didn't wanna risk going all the way to Boston, since I was in Malden, and I knew that seconds could make a difference, and it did in this case," said Williams.

Casaletto arrived to the scene so fast, he helped the new baby take her first breath. Now, Adrianna is resting peacefully with her mother at Tufts Medical Center.

"Thank you very much for helping our baby," said mother Rosalina Williams in a message to Casaletto.

It was all in a day's work for Casaletto.

"I'm just doing my job, doing what I'm trained to do," said Casaletto.
