Troopers Deliver Baby Boy on Route 2 in Glastonbury

Ebenezer-Okafur-Hartford
Saint Francis Hospital

One Hartford family received a special Christmas gift a bit early this year.

Itohan Oyabure-Okafur was on her way to St. Francis Hospital to give birth, but the baby couldn’t wait!

That was when Connecticut State Police were called to Route 2 west near exit 7 in Glastonbury. Troopers from Troop H delivered a healthy baby boy, Ebenezer Okafur, weighing in at 6 pounds 2 ounces.

Mom and baby were transported to St. Francis Hospital to be checked out and everyone was in good health.

Ebenezer came as a bit of a surprise – he wasn’t expected until Dec. 29. He has an 18-month-old brother named Itohan. The family, originally from Nigeria, says everyone is enjoying the early Christmas gift.
