2 firefighters help deliver baby boy in California parking lot
A couple pulled over into a medical clinic parking lot in California last week when they realized they weren’t going to make it to the hospital in time to deliver their baby.
Firefighters received a call that someone passed out in a parking lot on a July 3rd morning, but when firefighters arrived, they quickly found out that wasn’t the case.
The couple, who asked to be identified only as Mike and Melissa, were 15 minutes away from the hospital on July 3 when Melissa started having labor pain, saying the baby was coming now.
“I thought we had hours, not minutes,” said Melissa, who is now a mother of three.
Orange County Fire Authority firefighters Kyle Crossen and Kai Brody instead found a pregnant woman in imminent delivery.
firefighters arrived and helped deliver the baby boy in the front seat of the couple’s car.
Mike and Melissa say they are grateful that everything went well and are thankful for the firefighters quick actions.
The couple had a Zoom video call reunion Thursday with the firefighters, Kyle Crossen and Kai Brody, so that they could see the healthy baby they helped deliver.
