Information from WYSH Radio
Two Clinton firefighters delivered a baby by the side of the road Monday night on Charles G. Seivers Boulevard.
The Clinton Police Department pulled over a speeding car on Seivers Boulevard, in front of Clinton Rental, shortly after 7 p.m. Monday, and they were told by the driver that her daughter was in labor and that the baby was coming any minute.
Clinton firefighters Josh Queener and James Blakeney responded to the scene and determined that the baby’s arrival was imminent.
As it happened, an Anderson County ambulance was returning from a public relations event, and the driver stopped to see if she could help.
The firefighters quickly agreed and moved the pregnant woman from her car on the side of the road to the back of the ambulance, where they delivered a healthy baby boy.
We are awaiting the complete report from the Clinton Fire Department, and as soon as we are able, we will let you know who the ambulance driver was as well as who the happy, and now slightly larger, family is.
