Henrico Firefighters Deliver Two Babies

Also Save A Life With CPR

February 20, 2018 - 12:39 pm

Henrico, VA – Henrico firefighters delivered two babies over the three day weekend.  While not the first babies delivered by firefighters this year, they were a part of a flurry of activity over 72 hours.  At about 5 p.m. on Saturday, a woman in labor pulled into firehouse 6’s parking lot in the pouring rain.  Her bundle of joy just wouldn’t wait for the hospital and firefighters delivered her baby boy right there in the firehouse.

Henrico firefighters delivered another baby boy in the Hungry Spring Road area on Monday while other firefighters were busy restoring the gift of life to a man in Henrico’s west end when his heart stopped.  This cardiac arrest was witnessed at a gym and it was an off-duty Henrico firefighter that started bystander CPR while 911 was called.
