HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — Two firefighters in Henrico County have helped deliver a healthy baby boy.

WRIC-TV reports that a frantic father pulled up to a Henrico firehouse last weekend with a woman in full labor in the car.

Firefighter Mike Boisseau said the woman “had pretty much delivered on her own so we just helped the last little bit.”

The 14-year department veteran helped deliver the child with firefighter Matt Daugherty.

Both firefighters were trained in childbirth, but neither had ever delivered a baby before.

Daugherty told WRIC: “Just doing it for the first time was like ‘holy moly, what’s going on.'”
