Bangor Firefighters Deliver Baby On Union St. Overpass
Firefighters responded to the I-95 overpass on Union St. in Bangor Thursday morning to assist a woman in labor.
Crews attempted to transport the woman to the hospital, but "it was clear that this little girl didn’t want to wait any longer," the Bangor Fire Department said on Twitter.
The mother and child were transported to Eastern Maine Medical Center after the delivery.
The firefighters are also trained paramedics. The fire department in recent years has made an effort to train its employees to serve in dual-positions as firefighter/medics.
