    Two brothers, one an NYPD cop and the other an FDNY EMT, responded to the same call for a woman in labor in Times Square and together helped deliver her baby.

    NYPD officer Yan Poon was among the first cops responding to the 911 call from a hotel on West 43rd Street just after 12:30 p.m., according to police. In the room, he and officers Zhan Ren and Nicole Davis found Kristen Smith and her 35-year-old wife, Heather Smith, who was in active labor.

    "When we got to the scene, it was a little chaotic, and I knew I needed to be the one to keep everyone calm," Poon said in a statement. "I instructed her to breathe and push." 

    By the time EMS arrived, Heather Smith had given birth. 

    "We arrived on scene, and I saw my brother in the hotel room with the patient," said EMT Yan Hao Poon. "The baby was already out, so my brother and I went to work assessing both patients, keeping the baby warm and providing oxygen." 

    The brothers both work out of the Times Square area, and they happened to be working the same shift Friday: "We end up on the same call at least once a week," said officer Poon. 

    Officer Poon went in the ambulance with the Smiths and their new baby, and all three are doing well at the hospital, according to the FDNY. 

    "The FDNY would like to congratulate Heather and Kristen Smith on the birth of their baby, Jackson," they said.

    A press adviser helping lead the Senate Judiciary Committee’s response to a sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has stepped down amid evidence he was fired from a previous political job in part because of a sexual harassment allegation against him. 

    Garrett Ventry, 29, who served as a communications aide to the committee chaired by Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, had been helping coordinate the majority party's messaging in the wake of Christine Blasey Ford’s claim that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her 36 years ago at a high school party. In a response to NBC News, Ventry denied any past "allegations of misconduct." 

    After NBC News raised questions about Ventry's employment history and the sexual assault allegation against him, Judiciary Committee Spokesman Taylor Foy replied in a statement: "While (Ventry) strongly denies allegations of wrongdoing, he decided to resign to avoid causing any distraction from the work of the committee." 

    Republicans familiar with the situation had been concerned that Ventry, because of his history, could not lead an effective communications response.

    Animal control officers are investigating what may be a terrible case of animal cruelty. Inside an abandoned cardboard box in Fullerton, they discover an 18-month-old pug. Her hind legs appeared to have been deliberately severed. 
    The pug, named Mila, is on the mend. She has even figured out how to walk without her hind legs.  Mila has a long road to recovery and investigators have a challenging task in finding out who did this to her.
    After Mila was found, veterinarians rushed her into the first of many difficult surgeries. Her back legs are heavily bandaged as doctors determine the next steps in her treatment. If Mila is in any pain, she doesn't show it.
    "I think it's really rallied all of us to see how resilient she is - and that's why we really want to provide her with the best life that we can," said Mike Kaviani the director of OC Animal Care. "To have experienced what she experienced and still not be holding it against humans - right?  She still loves every human she's ever met - and that's a miracle."
    So far it does not appear there is any surveillance video that may have captured who dropped her off or did this to her.
    Mila won't be up for adoption anytime soon, but if you'd like to help her recovery you can donate to OC Animal Care by visiting this link.

    A male suspect was spotted climbing the fence of an Encino home owned by Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig just two days after it was burglarized.

    Surveillance footage shows the man scaling the fence and making his way onto the property before leaving without entering the house itself.

    Two days earlier, a pair of suspects "ransacked" Puig's home, causing as much as $10,000 in property damage after dragging a safe from the second floor down the stairs, according to the LAPD. It is unclear whether Thursday's trespassing may be related the Tuesday's burglary, though police believe the burglary suspects may have been involved in yet another attempt to rob the house that occurred in August.

    When asked about the incidents, Puig said he's not allowing them to distract from his goals for the Dodgers' season.

    "There's nothing I can do right now," he said. "I keep going to practice and doing my best for my team to make the playoffs and make the World Series. That's my focus right now and I'm not worried about these problems happening at my house."

    A sheriff's deputy suffered minor injuries while trying to break up a melee that erupted outside of San Jacinto High School and his alleged attacker was arrested, sheriff's officials said.

    The fight broke out at about 1:30 p.m. Friday on Tiger Lane between North Ramona Boulevard and Santa Rosa Street, just outside of San Jacinto High School, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department reported.

    The fight originally involved two female students, according a statement from the San Jacinto Unified School District.

    When he came upon the altercation, the deputy - a school resource officer - ordered a group of students who had gathered to disperse but they did not comply, sheriff's officials said.

    A short video showing a portion of the incident was posted on social media and shows a male student tackling the deputy to the ground while he is trying to break up the fight.

    The video then shows a man shoving the male teen off the deputy, who gets to his feet and chases the teen into traffic on Tiger Lane, where another struggle ensues before the video ends.

    Sheriff's officials said the teen was eventually arrested and the deputy was treated at the scene for minor injuries, though it was not clear if he was hospitalized.

    "SJHS ... will be reviewing all video and dealing appropriately with anyone involved in creating an unsafe environment for students and staff,'' district officials said.

    A local activist said today that hundreds of signatures have been collected on a petition to remove comedian Bill Cosby's star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

    Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson said the signatures will be presented to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce on Monday, when Cosby is due to be sentenced in a Pennsylvania courtroom for his felony conviction on sexual abuse charges.

    "The campaign to have Cosby's star removed from Hollywood Blvd has garnered thousands of signatures in the past three years and hundreds more have signed after his conviction,'' Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson said. "By keeping the Cosby star and ignoring the demand of thousands for removal the Chamber violates its own rules that an honoree must make worthy contributions to the community. Cosby's horrendous documented sexual abuses hardly qualify as worthy contributions to the community.''

    The 81-year-old comedian was found guilty at an April retrial of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University staffer Andrea Constand in his Pennsylvania home in 2004. He's been accused by dozens of women of committing similar crimes, but has maintained his innocence.

    The chamber has never removed a marker from the Walk of Fame and turned down a 2015 request to remove Cosby's star.

    Hutchison added that the campaign will continue to gather signatures.

    Some South Florida heroes reunited with their families Saturday after helping the victims of Hurricane Florence in the Carolinas.

    There were signs, balloons and yelling as the lights and sirens pulled up to the Miami Fire Rescue building. Then came the emotional embraces. The families were reunited after almost two weeks apart.

    “I’m going to eat some food with my girls. I left them right before we had to go to dinner like two weeks ago and I still owe them dinner,” said Capt. Miguel Ferrer, a first responder.

    Ronnie Lindsay hugged his son a little bit harder after rescuing am other whose baby died while they tried to escape the rising flood waters.

    “She lost her son in the current,” said Lindsay. “It was a very emotional moment for the entire team.”

    Miami Mayor Francis Suarez was there to welcome the team back home.

    “To me, they are heroes,” said Suarez.

    For many, he said this was not their first disaster. Some of them were in Puerto Rico for Hurricane Maria around the same time last year.

    “They put their life on the line, they have specialized skills, they help save lives,” said Suarez.

    Six weeks before the 2018 midterm elections, Democrats hold a 12-point lead in congressional preference among registered voters, with nearly six-in-ten saying they’d like to see significant change in the direction President Donald Trump has been leading the country, according to a new national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    The results suggest a political environment where Democrats have the clear advantage in their pursuit to win back control of Congress in November.

    One pollster said that Americans are "trying to send the signal that they’re not satisfied." Another said they are trying to show "they want to shake up the status quo."

    Still, the same poll shows that Republican enthusiasm about the upcoming election has increased, drawing nearly even with Democrats; that GOP attacks on immigration and Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi are potent in individual races; and that nearly 70 percent of voters are satisfied with the economy.

    The fire caused an estimated $400,000 of damage, authorities said. The cause is unknown.

    The end is near.

    For months now we've known that 2018 would mark the final season for Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley.

    The 16-year veteran announced his retirement back in July, and after press conferences and farewell stops in both Los Angeles and Philadelphia, the season slowly slugged along, and Utley continued to appear in games with the occasional pinch-hit appearance or spot start.

    As of Sunday, there's seven games left in the regular season, but the remaining six games are all on the road. With a deep roster of position players, even if the Dodgers hold on to win their sixth consecutive NL West crown and make the playoffs, it's likely that Chase Utley won't be on the postseason roster. That means that Sunday's game could be the last appearance for Utley at Dodger Stadium in his career.

    Sure, there's a chance Utley could make the postseason roster as a pinch-hitter or injuries could force the front office's hand between now and October, but more than likely, Sunday marks the fans final opportunity to see the six-year All-Star and World Series Champion on the field.

    The moment was not lost on Utley though. The soon-to-be 40-year-old posted a picture of an empty Dodger Stadium from behind home plate before the game, with a heartfelt caption.

    "I watched my first Major League game at this stadium 32 years ago. Today will be the last time I get to play here during the regular season. #bittersweet #dodgers"

    The post received a reply from super-utility player and "adopted son" of Utley, Kiké Hernandez who simply put a crying emoji. 

    The future Hall-of-Famer hit .276 with 259 home runs, 1,025 RBIs, and four silver slugger awards in his career and will likely be remembered as one of the top second baseman in the big leagues.

    The moment will probably go unnoticed amongst most Dodger fans until the end of the season and the announcement of the postseason roster for the National League Division Series or Wild Card Game, but for those fans in attendance in the regular season finale on Sunday who might happen to read this, tip your cap to one of the greatest who ever played the game.

    California restaurants that sell kids' meals will have to offer milk or water as the default drink option beginning in 2019.

    Kids' meals will have to be served with non-dairy alternative of less than 130 calories, water or flavored water with no added sweeteners. Sodas and sugary drinks will be available by request.

    The law follows ordinances enacted in a number of cities and counties around the state in recent years.

    "Our state is in the midst of a public health crisis where rates of preventable health conditions like obesity and Type-2 Diabetes are skyrocketing, due in large part to increased consumption of sugary beverages," State Senator Bill Monning, the law's author, said in a statement.

    According to Monning, parents are more likely to choose a sugary drink for their children when it is the default option, even when a healthier choice is available.

    Restaurants failing to follow the new law will face a minor penalty, additional violations over five- year period would result in fines starting at $250, but only a single fine would be assessed by inspection.
