Responders help mother deliver baby on BK street

A baby boy was born on a Brooklyn street Monday.



Witnesses crowded around the birthing mother on Henry Street, taking to social media to share the event.



Danielle Garcia, who witnessed the event, says she heard a commotion and went outside to find ambulances and medics assisting the new mother.



James Gramlich says he heard a woman scream in pain and ran outside to find emergency responders already treating the mother.



Sydney Bell, another witness, says she was first scared, but that fear turned to happiness after the successful delivery.



The healthy new mother and her newborn son were both taken to Brooklyn Hospital, according to officials.
