Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services (MCFRS) assisted in a baby delivery at approximately 6:45am on New Year’s morning, according to MCFRS Chief Spokesperson Pete Piringer.
Per Piringer, “While driving to the hospital, the baby was delivered in the car on the ICC (great work by 911 caller and call-taker, prior to EMS arrival).” The call was initially reported as a medical emergency on westbound MD200 ICC between Georgia Ave. and Shady Grove Rd at 6:51am on Sunday morning, but a 7:04 update revealed that MCFRS EMIHS was “transporting 2 patients, mother & baby, NLT, Happy New Year!!!.” Photos below:
