Watertown Policeman Assists With Birth. . . For 5th Time

View Comments

WATERTOWN, Conn. (AP) _ Watertown Police Sergeant Steve Skowronski is getting to be an old hand at delivering babies.

The Waterbury Republican-American reports Skowronski assisted for the fifth time in a birth on Thursday. The baby girl, Aloise Roberti, was born in her grandmother’s kitchen.

Bronwyn Hamill says she went to her mother’s home when she began feeling contractions. She says she called 9-1-1 when she realized they wouldn’t make to Saint Mary’s Hospital in time.

Skowronski responded. He is a former supervisor for American Medical Response and also serves as a first aid instructor for the police department.

He says he had delivered four babies in his work as a paramedic, and it was nice to do it again.

Hamill says she is fine and the baby is perfect.
