YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Port Authority police officer delivered a baby boy in the back of a taxi in lower Manhattan last night.

PAPD Officer Pasquale Carpentiere was on red light enforcement detail at the corner of Hudson and Laight streets when the cabbie got his attention around 11:30 p.m., the authority’s Joseph Pentangelo told CLIFFVIEW PILOT this morning.

Carpentiere requested EMS and delivered the boy, he said.

Officers Jorge Negron and Agostinho Matias, who also is a registered nurse, arrived soon after and helped stabilize the 39-year-old Bronx mother and child until EMS arrived, Pentangelo said.

Both were taken to Bellevue Hospital, he said.
