Columbus firefighters at Station 27 got a special visit on Tuesday from a 2-week-old baby they delivered along the side of Route 315.

The little boy, Julian Juan Torres, was born Oct. 11 in a vehicle on the side of the roadway on the city’s Northwest Side.

According to the Columbus Division of Fire, a call was received around 4:40 p.m. Oct. 11 about a woman in labor. The woman was attempting to get to the hospital, but Julian apparently could not wait.

City firefighter paramedics safely delivered Julian and then transported him and his mother to a local hospital for further evaluation.

Julian weighed 9 pounds 5 ounces and measured at 20.5 inches long.

On Tuesday, Julian’s family took him to city fire Station 27 to thank the paramedics who helped bring him into the world.
