Firefighters in Plaistow, New Hampshire had to act quickly when a woman in labor arrived at their station on Friday.
At 11:24 a.m., a couple walked into the fire station's lobby, according to a news release. The woman was quickly placed on a stretcher, and emergency medical services were notified. Seven minutes later, a baby boy was born.
“I was like, ‘Oh, let’s see what’s going on.’ As fast as I opened the door she practically lunged herself at me and said, ‘“I’m gonna have a baby! I’m gonna have a baby!’ Boy, it was the fastest five minutes of our lives,” firefighter Derek Travers told the New Hampshire Union Leader.
