Earlier this year, in the Baltimore area, a pregnant firefighter assisted an injured woman involved in a car wreck, and both may end up needing physical therapy Baltimore, MD accident victims count on for their recovery. The pregnant woman was also involved in the car wreck pile up as a passenger, but quickly sprang into action when she noticed that a vehicle was overturned as a result of the accident. She assisted the injured woman who was trapped in the overturned vehicle until paramedics arrived. During her pregnancy she had been on desk duty as a firefighter, but that did not stop her from stepping up to help when circumstances placed in a position to help someone in need. The activity of the accident and assisting the injured victim induced labor, and she delivered a healthy baby girl less than 24 hours after the incident. The father of the baby, and boyfriend of mom, is an EMT who also works for the fire department and was one of the first responders to be on the scene of the accident, and also made it to the hospital in time for the birth of the baby.
