A family says they're delighted their new baby boy is doing just fine after two EMTs in Easton helped the mother give birth in an ambulance.
Josh Meszaros and Peter Fiore say once they got the call, everything happened quickly.
After they picked the mother up at home and were on their way to St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport, the baby couldn't wait. Fiore says he delivered the baby right in the back of the ambulance.
"It was moving. It brought a tear to my eyes," he says.
Orion Xavier Christoforou was then born at 7 pounds, 15 ounces and 21 inches.
The mother and the baby are now resting comfortably at the hospital.
The parents posted on Facebook that they are grateful for what Meszaros and Fiore did Monday.
Easton EMS says this was such a boost for its staff after dealing with so much suffering from COVID-19.
Fiore says this is the third baby he's delivered on the job.
