A true Bronx tale occurred over the weekend when a tow truck driver from the borough that houses Yankee Stadium, delivered a baby ad hoc in East Harlem, after being flagged down by a New York couple.

Antonio Paulino was driving his tow truck through East Harlem when a man called his attention and informed him that his wife was going into labor.

“My wife is giving birth,” the man told Paulino, according to the New York Post.

The couple about to receive their child was Orthodox Jewish, and the father to be informed Paulino that it was against his religion for his wife or the baby to be touched by the husband during the birth.

“I reached in and took the baby out,” Paulino told the Post.
