Wentworth-Douglass Security Officer Honored by Celtics

The Boston Celtics honored Wentworth-Douglass Hospital Security Officer Andy Clark during their game against the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday, November 9.

On September 12, Clark rushed to a vehicle, parked just outside Wentworth-Douglass Hospital's Garrison Wing entrance, after a patient gave birth to a baby in her car. Clark assisted the child by unwrapping the umbilical cord that was around its neck.

The encounter was covered by numerous media outlets:

Foster's Daily Democrat

CBS News


Clark and his family received VIP treatment from the team, and he was given a standing ovation by a sold out crowd at the TD Garden.
