file photoBedford Hills, NY - Two Bedford police officers helped deliver a baby boy at the Talmud Torah of Kasho community center this morning.

The mother said, “It’s coming,” Officer Melvin Padilla said when he and Officer Frank Egelsen walked in to the 165 Haines Road complex at 7 a.m.

The paramedic had not yet arrived. Padilla told her to hold on, but she couldn’t, he said.

“It felt like about a year and a half,” he said, before the paramedic came just in time to catch the nearly fully emerged baby boy.

Padilla said it was a very exciting morning.
Mother and son seemed well, he said. He did not know to what area hospital they were taken.

He did not catch the name of the paramedic.

Let's look at the positive side: the baby is alive, the mother is health, B"H.

maybe because a talmud torah is not the place of choice for most woman to give birth in . but that's just my humble opinion maybe your wife runs to nearest talmud torah when its time to deliver .

Don't be so negative and suspicious. You obviously are a man. The mother could have been bringing an older child to school. Maybe she works there. There are lots of good reasons why she could have been there. Sometimes babies come before the due date and sometimes there aren't a lot of contractions to give warning of enough time to get to the Hospital.

Maybe she was a secretary in the cheder. Or she was dropping off her husband who is a rebbi there.

whats the question, the mother was taking some of her boys in cheider, they dont have transportation over there, or maybe she went outside looking for some help.
and B'h child is alive mother is healthy, lets hope they`ll see lots of naches.

This town of Kasho is like a yeshiva shtetl, it started with a yeshiva, then more families moved out there, but the place is still called "Yeshiva", in the neighbors view they all live in a yeshiva campus.

look like this happend :

ויתרוצצו: על כרחך המקרא הזה אומר דורשני, שסתם מה היא רציצה זו וכתב אם כן למה זה אנכי.
רבותינו דרשוהו לשון ריצה, כשהיתה עוברת על פתחי תורה של שם ועבר יעקב רץ ומפרכס לצאת, עוברת על פתחי עבודה זרה עשו מפרכס לצאת. דבר אחר מתרוצצים זה עם זה ומריבים בנחלת שני עולמות:

When I was a kid the building for the cheder was not in use and the children went to nitra which is nearby about an 8-10 min. drive. Therefore, I am assuming that there were NO children at all in the building at least not 7 in the morning and assuming the paramedics utilized the space of it bersus being in a crowded house ungeleigt

In this shtetel there are only yidden besides one single maintenance guy living on premises.
This birth probably took place in a house in the "yeshiva settlement", not in a yeshiva building.
