Firefighters delivered a special Father’s Day present in Westchester. Literally.
Crews from the Yonkers FD's Engine 308 responded to a maternity call at a Warburton Avenue apartment shortly after 6:45 p.m. on Sunday, June 16.
According to Yonkers Deputy Chief Daniel Flynn, crews got to the apartment within minutes, and at approximately 7:27 p.m., the crew of Lt. Thomas Hewitt and firefighters Robert Doolity, Troy Philbert, and Anthony Perez assisted the mother in successfully delivering a baby girl.
Paramedics arrived shortly thereafter and the mother and baby were transported to an area hospital. Both are in good condition as of Monday morning.
“Tonight the crew of Engine 308 helped deliver a baby girl! Great job guys! #YonkersFire," IAFF Local 628 Yonkers Firefighters posted on Facebook.
