SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Sacramento Fire really delivered for one of their own last month when they got a call to help a local couple deliver a baby.
When they arrived, they learned it was a Sacramento Metro paramedic Rylan Smith and his wife. They were able to safely deliver the baby girl. Sacramento Fire firefighter/paramedic Peter Hermandez and intern Kai Loechler assisted the couple.
“It’s not every day a Sacramento Fire crew helps in delivering a Sac Metro paramedic’s baby,” Hermandez said.
On Monday, Smith and his wife stopped by the station to formally introduce their healthy baby girl, Amira.
Baby Amira also got a special Sacramento Fire blanket from the team at the station.
While responding to a call, SacFire's Peter Hernandez and intern Kai Loechler ended up assisting a couple in the delivery of a baby girl. That couple was @metrofirepio 's Rylan Smith and his wife. Congratulations to the Smith family & SacMetro Fire on the new addition. pic.twitter.com/Vrq1O4j1RW
