Florida Cop Blocks Pregnant Woman In Pain From Entering Hospital Just Feet Away
A video showing two Florida police officers blocking a pregnant woman from entering a hospital has gone viral this week.
Kevin Enciso and his pregnant wife, Sabrina, were on their way to a hospital in Doral, Florida, when the cops stopped in front of them as they neared the emergency room on July 28, WSVN-TV reported.
Kevin Enciso said the two Miami-Dade Police officers “refused” to get out of their way, even though his wife told them she was in pain from a car wreck a day earlier and Kevin Enciso told them it was an emergency. Sabrina Enciso filmed the encounter.
The video shows two police cars blocking the emergency room’s entrance and, after Enciso honked at them, one of the cops came up to the couple’s car.
The woman — an employee at the hospital — expressed her worries that she’d have a miscarriage as her husband is told to get out of the car.
After Sabrina Enciso exited the car, the officer commented, “Oh, so you’re OK now.”
“Right now, no, I’m having a lot of pain,” Sabrina Enciso said before the officer interjected.
“Have a seat, have a seat,” the officer tells the woman near the emergency room entrance.

Sabrina Enciso told WPLG-TV that the officer called fire rescue, despite her insistence that she was already at the emergency room entrance.
She said first responders took her blood pressure, which her husband says was “skyrocketing,” and the couple was allowed to leave.
“It could’ve went in a different direction, we would be having a different conversation,” Sabrina Enciso said.
A Miami-Dade police spokesperson told the news outlet that it was aware of the video and is launching an internal investigation.
