New Bedford Firefighters help woman deliver a baby in her living room


It wasn’t your average day in the office for four New Bedford Firefighters this Tuesday evening! At 5:10pm, Engine Company 8 responded to 104 Whitman St for a female in labor.

Lt. Nate Sylvia, FF Josh Charbonneau, FF Steven Mourao, and FF Kyle Carlson assisted a Mother in delivering a baby boy in her living room without complications. New Bedford EMS Paramedics along with EMS Supervisor Ralph Isherwood arrived and assumed care of Mom and her baby boy.

Both of them were transported to St. Luke’s Hospital Emergency Department and are doing well. NBPD also assisted on scene. Congratulations to the mother and huge shoutout to the New Bedford first responders that helped out!
