DUXBURY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Paramedics in Duxbury helped deliver a healthy baby girl in the back of an ambulance Friday morning.
Duxbury Firefighter Paramedic Zach O'Sullivan told WBZ NewsRadio said he and several other paramedics responded to a call that a woman was in labor.
"We assisted her to our ambulance, and on the way to the hospital, she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl," O'Sullivan said.
With the father, three paramedics, and one EMT in the back of the ambulance, the baby was born around 9:30 a.m.
O'Sullivan said everything went smoothly, and his crew members did exactly what they should have—"like a pit crew, a well-oiled machine."
He said mother and child were both healthy.
"An excellent ending to a low-frequency, very high-accuity call," he said. "This is why we do what we do. This is why we train every day, this is why we check our trucks every day. This is why we make sure our equipment runs every day, to serve the community at the highest level possible."
