‘The baby couldn’t wait’: Baby girl delivered at DC firehouse
WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - D.C.’s Bravest delivered a baby girl at a firehouse in Southeast on Monday afternoon, according to DC Fire and EMS.
Officials say a 22-year-old woman was on a bus with her husband and their son when she realized she was going into labor.
That's when the family hopped off the bus and walked into the Barracks Row firehouse of Engine 18 and Truck 7 in Capitol Hill.
Officials say the baby's mother and the newborn are "fine" and have been transported to an area hospital. The baby weighs 6 pounds and 2 ounces.
“It doesn’t happen often that the call comes to us, let alone, a baby being born right inside of the station,” DC Fire and EMS tweeted Monday afternoon.
The new mom says today also happens to be her son's birthday as well.
