Reston firefighters help deliver baby at station

Firefighters at the Reston Fire Station on Wiehle Avenue were met with a different kind of task this morning (Tuesday).

A crew of fire fighters helped deliver a baby around 8:30 a.m. today. According to the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, the parents were on their way to the hospital, but the baby simply could not wait.

The car pulled up in the station’s parking lot, and everything was history after that point. After the birth, the fire department provided transportation to the hospital, and both mom and baby are now doing well.
