Some are calling it the miracle on Third Avenue, after a pregnant woman went into labor and delivered her baby right on the sidewalk Monday (2/24).

Polly McCourt stepped out of her home in New York City to get to the hospital. The doorman hailed a cab, but the baby couldn't wait.

The new mother got down on the ground in the crosswalk as several strangers helped out, until police medics arrived and took care of her.

Several women offered their scarves to wrap up the newborn.

One woman, believed to be named Isabel, gave McCourt her coat to keep her covered.

The McCourts don't have any way to contact Isabel and would like to thank her and replace her coat.
