Chicago Fire Department news (more)

Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

Chicago firefighters who helped deliver a baby outside a station in the city’s River West neighborhood Tuesday morning got to meet the mother and baby they helped.

Vanessa Villa went into labor outside Engine 14 in the 1100-block of West Chicago Avenue around 8:50 a.m. Shew was being driven to the hospital by a friend who pulled over at the fire house as the mother’s contractions were only about a minute apart.

Friday night they all formally met for the first time. Firefighters gave the baby, named Julian Lopezi, a new onesie, and gave Villa’s other child a shirt.
