Quincy firefighters deliver baby on sidewalk

QUINCY, Mass. (AP) — Quincy firefighters leaped into action when a cab driver knocked on their door in the wee hours and said his passenger was having a baby.

The firefighters at Engine Company 2 not only delivered the baby girl right there on the sidewalk at 1:30 a.m. Friday, they saved the baby’s life.

Fire Lt. Shawn Darcy says when he and his colleagues reached the cab, the baby was partially delivered.

They completed the delivery, but found that the baby wasn’t breathing. They cleared her airways and she started to cry.

An ambulance showed up and transported the baby and her parents to the hospital, where all are reportedly doing well.
