U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Tahoma Crew Assist in Newborn's Delivery

An Air Station Clearwater, Fla., helicopter crew aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Tahoma assisted in the delivery of a male Haitian newborn on the cutter Saturday afternoon. A pregnant Haitian citizen went into labor on the flight deck as the helicopter was refueling aboard the cutter. The rescue swimmer from Coast Guard HH-60 helicopter CG6024 then delivered the five-pound newborn. The mother and child were taken to a hospital in Cap Haitien, Haiti for further medical treatment and were in good condition. Tahoma was transferring Haitian citizens to Cap Haitien from Port-au-Prince for medical assistance when the woman went into labor.
