As an officer, one must be prepared for any situation that may arise. And for Sergeant Jon-Erik Negron from Suffolk County, assisting someone in giving birth is almost a regular occurrence. In fact, he could be considered a specialist in this field.
On a typical Saturday morning, officers Zachary Vormittag, Jadin Rodriguez, Conor Deimer, and Sgt. Negron were going about their workday as usual when they received a call from a concerned citizen. A woman was giving birth in her living room, weeks before her due date. Thanks to the quick actions of these officers, Baby Owen Anthony Maldonado was safely born in the living room of his home.
While most officers present at the scene assisted in a birth for the first time, for Sergeant Negron, it was his fifth delivery. In 2017, he was assisting a family with the third delivery of his police career. He helped save baby Bryce’s life when the infant stopped breathing after an umbilical cord was tied around his neck. Because of his heroic and timely actions, the family made him Bryce’s Godfather.
Sergeant Negron’s experience in assisting in birth is not only a testament to his commitment to serving his community but also his quick thinking and ability to handle high-pressure situations. His actions in the past have not only saved lives but also earned him a special place in the lives of the families he has helped.
It’s clear that Sergeant Negron is dedicated to serving his community and goes above and beyond the call of duty, even in the most unexpected of situations. His actions are a shining example of the kind of officer we need in our communities.
It was in the same year that Sergeant Jon-Erik Negron helped deliver a baby on the side of the road in Centereach, assisted by another officer. Reflecting on his record of deliveries, Negron said, “I thought that my childbirth days were over when I became a sergeant this year and I guess the record lives on so we’ll see how many we can take it to.”
The officers involved in baby Owen’s delivery shared that it was a perfect and successful birth thanks to their ability to work together as a team. Officer Jadin Rodriguez said, “It was a great experience, all of our training kicked in, we all played a big role. Everyone took over and we couldn’t have done it without each other.”
Thankfully, baby Owen and his parents are safe and healthy at home. The new mother, who has not yet had the opportunity to meet the officers again, expressed her gratitude for their help and fast response.
