Officer Sell Commendation

At the October 9 meeting of Bridgeport Borough Council, Officer Shannon Sell was presented with a commendation for delivering and helping to save the life of a baby girl born in the borough July 9. The baby girl Sell delivered was in respiratory distress, so Sell began resuscitating the child with the help of Plymouth Ambulance medics. She then stayed at the scene, attending to the child's mother while the baby was transported to Einstein Medical Center Montgomery. Baby Veronica and her mother are now doing fine, and attended Tuesday's meeting along with Veronica's family. We thank Officer Sell for her amazing efforts during this crucial situation.
