Gloucester Firefighter Paramedics Help Deliver Healthy Baby in Ambulance on Route 128

Chief Eric Smith is pleased to announce that Gloucester Fire Department Firefighter Paramedics helped deliver a healthy baby in an ambulance on Route 128 Thursday morning.
On Thursday, Nov. 3, at approximately 8:15 a.m., the Gloucester Fire Department responded to a report of a woman in labor at a home on Veterans Way.
While transporting the mother to the hospital, labor reached advanced stages, and Firefighter Paramedics Lukas McRobb and George Black determined they needed to stop the ambulance to deliver the baby.
A 19-inch, 6-pound and 15-ounce healthy baby boy was delivered along Route 128 about a mile from Beverly Hospital. Following the delivery, the family was transported to the hospital, where they are reportedly in good health.
“Our firefighter paramedics are dedicated, highly-trained first responders with advanced medical skills that are vital in exactly these kinds of situations,” said Chief Smith. “A majority of the calls the Gloucester Fire Department responds to are medical in nature, and Firefighter Paramedics McRobb and Black are a credit to themselves and their entire department. All of us at the Gloucester Fire Department wish this family a healthy and happy future.”
