August 13 – ON TUESDAY MORNING, August 4, at around 2:30am, the Port Authority Police Department responded to a call of a full-term pregnant woman in labor at the World Trade Center PATH station.

“The woman stated she felt the baby coming and the officers prepared the area and aided for a possible birth,” said Port Authority spokesman Joe Pentangelo.

One of the officers responding to the scene was Holmdel resident and former Jersey City EMT, Brian McGraw. After evaluating the patient, McGraw had determined the birth was about to occur. A few minutes later, the 6-pound, 14-ounce baby girl, later named Asenat Abdrabo, was born.

After EMS arrived, the parents, along with their two-year-old son, were transported to Beekman Downtown Hospital.
