While baby Owen was safely born with a “pretty simple living-room childbirth,” not every baby Negron gave birth to life started so easily.

Negron first gained national attention after saving the life of tiny Bryce Pappalardo, who was born unexpectedly at home on August 22, 2017, the Associated Press reported.

Pappalardo, the first baby Negron helped deliver, was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck and was not breathing even after the cord was removed.

Using a syringe he found in the Pappalardo family’s kitchen, Negron opened the baby’s airway and began breathing normally.
