Andover (MA) Firefighters Deliver Baby in Ambulance

Firefighters and paramedics en route to the hospital delivered a baby in an ambulance, reports The Eagle-Tribune.

The mother-to-be was 39 weeks pregnant with a due date next week but she was in active labor when firefighters arrived. Mother and daughter continued to the hospital, where they are both said to be doing well. 

For one firefighter, it was his third field delivery in a 13-year career in emergency medical services and firefighting. For the other it was his first baby in his nine-year career.
