WILMINGTON, MA — At 9:56 this morning, Wilmington Public Safety Dispatch received a 911 call from a man who’s wife was in active labor and was about to give birth. He had pulled over on the side of I-93 at exit 39.
Dispatcher Jill Regan provided instructions for the father as the baby was being born.
As units were responding, Dispatcher Regan initially radioed that the baby’s head was showing. By the time Officer Matt Stavro arrived on scene, less than two minutes later, the baby had been fully delivered inside the vehicle.
Officer Stavro provided first aid care for mother and baby until Wilmington Fire Department EMT’s and Action Ambulance paramedics arrived on scene.
Mother and baby were transported to Winchester Hospital.
