According to NJ.com, three EMTs from the Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps. helped deliver the baby at the home on 12th Street. The baby and mother were then safely transported to Hoboken University Medical Center.

24-year old Matt Genovese was reported missing on January 25th after spending the evening with friends on January 23rd. He was last reported leaving McSwiggan’s between 10:30 and 11:30PM when he said he was heading home. Tragically, his body was recovered from the Hudson river on Tuesday afternoon. His wallet and keys were found in Pier A. Further details have not yet been released as the incident is still being investigated. This tragedy seems all too familiar with many people acknowledging similarities between the 2014 disappearance of Andrew Jarzyk.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of Matt Genovese.
